Well done to Gerard Punch and Andy Aston on completing their CCR Trimix course last weekend.
Braving Vobster and Chepstow despite the chilly water temperatures of the quarries.
Also many thanks to Rick Ayrton for sending me the photos, having patiently followed us around Vobster skill bashing for an hour on the first day.

Early start, 06.30 Kyarra, worth getting up for before the gales forecast get going.

Kyarra vis is is coming back and was 8-10M on the LWS. Pete and I sneaked a dive this afternoon, excellent vis and an interesting boat ride!
There is still some good diving to be done.

Despite a low water, quite springy tide, the vis out on the Kyarra was still very respectable.
The exposed boiler can clearly be seen, no not me, the big thing next to me!
When the tide did turn though it did kick in big time.
Thanks to Bruce our Swanage Diver skipper.

Great vis at Swanage

After my week at Vobster instructing at Tek camp, I got back to great vis at Swanage.
This was taken on the Fleur in the bay. Even further off shore. The bigger wrecks had excellent vis, 10m plus.
Since then we have had some Easterlies which did their usual damage but even now the vis is back.
Open water courses over the next 3 weeks.
Good diving,
Mike
