Training – Cromhall (Jul ’17)

Thanks very much to Sue for expertly organising a highly successful, productive and very enjoyable training day at Cromhall. Also thank you to the instructors who gave their valuable time and expertise to assist.

Congratulations and welcome to Luke on his 1st and 2nd Ocean Diver open water dives with us and also to Claire on her 1st dive with us while embarking on her Dive Leader training.

Happy campers

 It was lovely to see so many members (present and past) together. With 12 of us diving and quite a few non divers present too we made quite a crowd.

John prepares to unleash the beast!

Although due to it clashing with the harbour festival we had scaled down the social event nature of the day, with John F manning his trusty barbecue and Jan providing a delicious freshly baked cake and ice cream, we eat very well indeed.

Tim takes note of poise & form

Here’s looking forward to the next one.

There they go!

  • ‘a brilliantly organised set of dives with instructors, trainees “cooks” and future instructors making great progress to have our new members getting the skills and experience to be able to dive safely with enjoyment.  We certainly enjoyed watching the efficiency of the whole day’ – John & Jan
  • ‘a fabulous day, hampered less by the weather than I’d feared luckily, but the excellent organisation wouldn’t have let that ruin the day anyway. The organisation was superb, the support was fantastic and I really appreciated getting back in the water with so little fuss. Well done Sue for organising it; Tim, Chris, Stewart et al for the instruction and everyone else for pitching in where required to make it a thoroughly successful day. Looking forward to the next one where I can pitch in a bit more.‘ – Claire

We’re OK!
