Thanks to Nick for a short introduction to Nitrox diving as part of the Club Diver lecture series.
Rescue training again in the pool in May
Final lecture in the Club Diver series – this one on boat diving. Good timing with the Club boat back from its major service and ready to go for its summer on the coast.
Off to Swanage for the first sea dives of 2023 – weather kinder than forecast, sun even putting in a weak appearance. Somewhat cool water and limited visibility, but good dives on the Fleur de Lys and a slightly swift Old Harry drift with some interesting things to go back and see in warmer, slower conditions.
April pool session and a chance to test out a new drysuit, to refresh rusty skills or simply to have a swim.
Members assembled for the AGM and a review of the past year’s activities in the comfortable setting of the church hall in Hindhead. Through training and diving to finances and membership, social and boatshed work parties, ending with a quick photographic review of some 2022 highlights. Welcome to our new members and big thanks recorded to Michael and David, both standing down from the committee this year after many years of involvement.
Next in the Club Diver lecture series by our Diving Officer, Mike – this one on Dive Planning! Everyone now looking forward to the first dives of the season even more!
Final committee meeting of the current membership year – once more on zoom – with plans and updates and suggestions prior to the AGM at the end of March.
Always great to see the happy, smiling faces after an introduction to diving, even when it’s only in the pool! Mike went through some of the first essential skills with Ben in our March pool session, while new members were honing their rescue lifts and SMB deployment with Nick.
Onto zoom for an introduction to underwater navigation for our February lecture – part of the Club Diver series.
