I would really appreciate a lift from London.
If I leave Brighton on saturday morning I can't really be in London before 7h30 am though. If that's ok for anyone please let me know.
Cheers, Kat

I'm keen on coming too. 50+ for both days. Lets hope they put the heating on this time. Any less than a thermocline free 30 degrees and I know a few who will think twice about getting in :)
 
Apologies Greenies and Meanies, there are no Angels available to cover this session. We're all either working that weekend or away, have kit in test, or are on the move with various things. Please cap the depth - Sam will be the guide there - and have strong surface safety for everyone.

I'll see you all next time I'm there, have fun!

Hello, I'm a newbie who'd like to learn to free dive.

Would it be possible to do a course on this weekend?

Cheers

heya everyone,

i'm hoping to make it up next weekend for the meet after my first try at freediving on the course last month with Sam... not sure what depth I'm looking at as had a bit of bother equalising last time, but let's say 20 max. I'll be camping too (in me van!)

See you sat,

Hi Toby

Sorry but we've finished teaching for this year (I need a break to do some diving myself, plus its a bit dark and miserable from now on!) We start teaching again next April/May. Keep an eye on www.learntofreedive.com for info on dates etc - or if you go and do your 2 star elsewhere, then you're welcome to join us at meets after that

OK - here's the plan - we have more than enough people for one round of dives, but not quite enough for two so some lines have 4 people on them. Hope that is OK.

Round 1 - meet at 11 am Saturday

Line 1
Kate A - 25
Martin - 25
Virginia – 20
Omar - 25

Line 2
Louise - 20
Alix - 25
Chris M – 25
Kattie - 25

Line 3
Mandy – 30 something
Sam – 30 something
Hannah - 35

Main Line
Gary - 40
Jay - 42
Brian - 45

Round 2 – meet at 1pm Saturday

Line 2 and 3 – safety practice (staying down on the pontoon so bring snacks/water)
Sam with: Kate, Jay, Kattie, Gary, Martin and Brian D

Line 1
Spare if anyone wants to use it to 25m.

Main Line
George - 45
Dave K - 50
Stuart - 50

We’ll sort Sunday out on Saturday when we know how many people are involved.

Dave, George, Stuart - if you are around earlier than I'm sure there is some mentoring/safetying to be done!

See you there

Sam

Sorry Sam but going to have to cancel this one. Two weeks ago I did something funny to my ear whilst equalizing at the bottom of the pool. Although I think it is getting better, it is still buzzing! Hopefully it has just sprained or something and is going to need some time to heal. I really don't want to miss out this weekend but I shoudn't push my already bad luck.

Be mindful everyone

Hi Sam

Sory for the late notice, can I come saturday and sunday this weekend.

Was hoping to dive with Kate, Hannah and Omar, not quite sure how that is going to work?

Would like to try one dive each day to 45ish (will set the line) otherwise happy at whatever depth.

Hope I am not too late
