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.
Two trainees taking advantage of our June pool session to learn some practical skills from our Diving Officer, Mike.
Thanks to Nick for running an in-club training course, and congratulations to Francis who is now qualified to dive on nitrox – nicely in time for Porthkerris diving next month.
Checking out the serviced gear and new masks etc in preparation for a special Red Sea trip later in 2019.
Congratulations to Phil who attended the Seasearch Observer course at Kent Wildlife Trust on 27th April, another member now ready to join the team recording seabed habitats and species to help with their conservation and protection.
Thanks to Equipment Officer, Phil, for arranging another batch of cylinder and kit testing to get us all ready for the diving season ahead, and make sure our club cylinder cage at the pool is properly stocked with in-test cylinders.
Thanks to Social Officer, Rob, and to Nick and Maddy for hosting another fantastic Chinese New Year banquet, heralding in the Year of the Pig – not particularly diving-related, but if pigs can fly, maybe they can dive too!
