You're mad!!!!

On the subject of camping, does anyone want mine and Martin's camping equipment? I know DK did, but he's clearing off to somewhere warm too. Let me know and I'll bring it with us.

Tent x 2 (5 man and a 3 man), gas camping cooker, kettle (I think!), lots of bits and pieces.

sam think it would be unwise to come this weekend. lungs are crap officially have bronchitis (according to gp anyway) so perhaps lungs would find themselves even crapper at -30 plus metres in very cold quarry. yes?

sorry about that. and bryn sorry you will have to find another lunatic to camp!!
to the next one...bimey i havent dived for ages how shit is that...
well the christmas meet then.

TOP day out with saltFree!

well today was TOP!!

Theo and Donna both got PBs and I did a good deep dive for me so very happy too!

Sun was out, bright and clear all day and yes it was cold but the quarry looked stunning and the viz was about 12m. We stayed in the water about 2 hours in all and did lots of training dives after our main deep attempts.

Results of the speed trial for a 20m sprint....

Theo "oh I can't read my computer" - unknown
David T "didn't have fins on so can't really compete" - unknown
Dave the Hardest - 25 seconds
Sam the Speediest (usually) - 25 seconds
Donna Gonzales Ryan - an incredible 24 seconds.. in bi fins with a dodgy leg!!

Thanks to the Angels - we had one each and seeing them down there always makes it easier - Martin, Mark Dean, Bex, Ben and Brad.... total stars as ever - glad we all made it down to you!

late lunch in the pub by the river was not so bad either...

wow.. more fun tomorrow, November Uk freediving rocks!

Sam xx

Wholeheartedly agree - the weekend was fab! Thanks to you all for making my last one (for a while anyway!) one to remember.

I slept like a log last night, content in the knowledge that at last I have dived the magical 30 as clean as a whistle! And I hold the speedy record, well for now anyway! I'll be training hard in Cyprus to retain that title....

See you all soon....make sure you visit us in Cyprus!
