The rainy November evening that was our AGM didn’t dampen enthusiasm around the room for planning activities for the year ahead: training, social and diving, particularly now we have established a better arrangement for keeping the boat on the south coast for the summer. Both our boats are safely tucked up in their winter quarters in Haslemere until the spring sunshine returns.
Congratulations to Liz and Francis, receiving their Seasearch surveyor qualifications at the Sussex Wildlife Trust Seasearch and Shoresearch social evening on 14th November 2019 at Shoreham Yacht Club, presented by the National Seasearch Co-ordinator, Charlotte Bolton. Gaining this qualification involves a two-day training course and then completing a series of five qualifying Survey forms after any UK dives.
It’s that time of year again when we review the year just past and set about planning what we’re going to do in the year ahead, and who’s going to do what on the 2020 Committee. All members welcome to come and have your say!
Always good to welcome new divers wanting to give it a go on one of our Thursday pool sessions.
Lovely setting for the Club’s 2019 end of summer barbecue on 7th September. Big thanks to Rob for organising and Liam and Nicky for hosting.
September’s pool session was a demonstration of rescue techniques, with Bob, our full-size rescue manikin waiting on the poolside after several practice lifts from the bottom of the pool.
The Club’s annual BBQ is planned for Saturday 7th September in Liphook, a five minute walk from Liphook station for anyone wanting to come or go by train. Please book your place with Rob.
‘Twas a wet and windy Friday down by the coast but, thanks to Liam and David, a successful towing and re-homing of Cobra for the summer at Eastney Cruising Association. Let’s hope the summer sun will return for some more good days out at sea.
Diver rescue training is made interesting when Bob, our full rescue manikin, is kitted up and thrown into the pool to be rescued.
It was back to the lovely Porthkerris for a small group of club members in June 2019, enjoying the many fabulous sites within an easy boat ride of the bay. A different B&B in Porthallow looked after us all very well while the Five Pilchards remains closed.
