Our first designated Open Water training weekend is 12th and/or 13th May. It is open to both Ocean and Sports Diver trainees and the venue will probably be Capernwray (or possibly 8 Acre Lake if the take-up is mainly Ocean Divers). Please will all trainees and instructors let me know by Tuesday 1st May which day or days they would like to come/be available. Once I have all the information I will work out the best plan to get maximum training done. I’d prefer if you’d email me your preferences to firstname.lastname@example.org rather than telling me at club (but if you do tell me at club make sure I write it down!)
We’ve been diving today at Dosthill and, although it was chilly I lasted for 35 minutes (amazing!). By 12th May the water will be warmer and it should be possible to dive in a thick wetsuit (hireable from both Capernwray and 8Acre). However, anyone who wants to dive in a drysuit and hasn’t finished their theory/pool training must let me know asap so we can organise it in the intervening weeks.
Let’s make this a really busy first outing and get lots done!
