Hello brave non-cold fearing people

Just to let you know the plan for this weekend - things will be slightly different to usual as we only have Angel cover on the Saturday. So - our dives will be


In water for 10.15am on Saturday - top time 11am - prompt - time is of the essence if we want to get two dives with scuba cover in - get to NDC whenever you need to do that, stretch, change, eat breakfast, natter etc by 9.30 am at the latest - dives covered by Angels to 50m. I might already be on the pontoon when you get there, if so, please self-motivate and join me!

In water again asap after lunch surface interval - second dive covered by Angels to 45m

Saturday night
Party at my place in Bristol for those who are coming

If people want to to do this - back to Chepstow to dive one session of 25m max training dives, no Angels. Sunday lunch afterwards perhaps...

At the moment I have the following dives listed - if you are on this list, I have already emailed you the depths you are down to dive to, please let me know if this has changed, I figured not everyone would want their depth published on the net!

Sat AM
Dave Morgan
Shaun - video ing

Sat PM
Dave Morgan
Shaun - video

please note that due to Deco requirements of the Angels - your deepest attempt will need to be in the morning - so I have put your "Sunday" depths down as Sat AM and your "Saturday" depths down as Sat PM.

Sunday - everyone max 25m as many times as you like
Dave M

if this changes your mind about coming, or about your depths please let me know NOW!! we will cancel Sunday if not enough people want to do it.

Please bear with us through the winter months. We are doing what we can but it is VERY hard to get an experienced scuba team together to cover the depths we need and also to get enough good freedivers along to safety dive. Full SaltFree services will resume in the Spring - I hope things to be more normal with two dives on Saturday, one with Angels, one without and one with on Sundays - from at least April onwards.

Laura and Mark Harris will be running the March meet as I am away with work that weekend, they will be in touch nearer the time.

See you Saturday - please, please let me know a.s.a.p. if you are not coming or want to dive shallower. All our deep guys this weekend are on trimix which is very expensive and filled very specifically to match the depths you have requested - please respect that.


Hmmm, sadly can't be there despite the fact I like 2 be there, maybe next time?????
ok the list is now.....

Saturday - 2 sessions with Angels
Hardest Dave
Franck (maybe in the afternoon)

me - prob not diving, still coughing like a seal...

Sunday - 25m max, 1 session, no Angels
Hardest Dave
Lammy Dave

and for the record, the hardest of hardcore posse this weekend were....

Saturday -

Angels - Mark W, Brad and Ben
In the water hard core freedivers - Sam, Hardest Dave, Remi
Moral Support on the pontoon - Shaun and Bex

Sunday -
special prize for being the hardest of hard, freediving in a snow storm in 6c brought down to a windchill of about 2c with a strong northerly wind.... and a hangover...

Sam, Franck and Lammy Dave

Respect is Due!!!!

things can only get better, lets hope spring has sprung in time for the March meet
