Hi sam,
I still dont have a lanyard, but i would be keen on buying one. Someone mentioned that you used to sell these through salt free. have you got any knocking about? and if so, how much are they? if not, is there any spares for the weekend?

Cheers

Gary.

yippee! I'm just leaving...
Oh the irony....

Too bad you couldn't make it Sam, we had one of those fun "triumph through adversity" weekends which was great fun.

Saturday was a small intimate meeting with myself, Mandy, John and Gary. Everyone was happy with their dives, in particular Mandy was grinning like the cat that got the cream with her new posh carbon monofin. Unfortunately I forgot to get the pontoon key off her before she left which made for an interesting 5 minutes on Sunday morning but not a problem thanks to Gary and his toolkit.

Sunday was a bit bigger meet with Gary, Emma, Tom, Coen, Claire and myself. All in all some good dives and smiles all round.

Conditions were a little testy - Saturday was rainy, cold and a bit windy. Sunday was rainier, colder and windier, with extra mud puddles around the car park. In the water was about 13/14deg on the surface and a wee bit frosty at depth. Vis was a lovely 10m or so, coming up from dives and looking up at 15m gave a brilliant sillouette of the pontoon and the divers with a surprising amount of light, despite the rain and cloud.

Well done to everyone and hope you can make the next one in November!

Cheers,
Ben

Well done to Ben for his no fins dive too.... even if he was a little bit longer than he said, and made me wait for him at 15 metres!!!

my new fin rocks... had a play in the pool last night with it too.... not as pretty as the blue one though :)

Ben... meant to tell you... i gave the key back to Darren.... so you didn't need the screwdriver afterall !!!

did you manage to get the knot undone?? :) if you can't tie knots, tie lots !!!

Ah! I went and asked in the shop and they said no, check in the compressor room next door, so I went in and asked the big bloke and he said they didn't have it. Hmm, obviously a conspiracy against Australians....

Didn't have any problems with the knot, which actually means I delegated that one to Tom :D He got there in the end.
