No time for Swanning about ….. in Swanage!

So the kit rinsing & drying has started in earnest …. after a weekend diving in Swanage.
For those few of you who missed it, the Club had a packed few days in Dorset.
On Saturday we managed 2 dives under the Pier. 1 to the Fleur de Lys. 1 to the Betsy Anna & 1 to the Kyarra!
Sunday’s original plan was a bit curtailed by the wind, but we still managed 1 dive under the Pier & trip out to the Fleur de Lys & barge.
All in all, 11 Club members carried out 46 dives between them! With a cumulative total of over 27 hours spent underwater!
Ocean Diver trainees Maliha & Chryssa were able to do all 4 of their Open Water dives. With over 120 minutes underwater each.
Expertly carrying out all the required skills, whilst surrounded by thousands of fish of all shapes & sizes. Fitting in: Dives in protective clothing, shore dive, boat dive, Nitrox 32, Which means that Maliha is now fully qualified, congratulations!
& Chryssa just has her exam to do, well done to you both.
The weekend was busy with lots to do on a pretty tight schedule & it wouldn’t have been possible without the help from Club Instructors & Senior Divers: Bruce, Sally, Chris, Maggie, Steve & Our friendly ringer Instructor Big John!
All ably assisted by Jason, Dave & Tara & Ross back in London sorting out everybody’s kit for the trip!
A huge BSAC 42 “thank you” to you all. Much appreciated.
The diving was good, but the chat n banter & the food were all excellent as well …. oh yes & so was the tea, coffee & the beer. Don’t forget the beer!
It was a good weekend, when lots got done. Members got Qualified & everybody had some pleasant dives!
If you didn’t make it this year??????
Look out for Swanage on the 2019 Dive List & put your name down !!!!!!
