It was a busy night in the pool on Thursday 3rd, two instructors with new Ocean Diver trainees, Nicky and Martha getting to grips with their drysuits (ready for a chilly trip to the Cove) with another instructor and a try diver with a fourth. Meanwhile, zipping between the other divers and a few swimmers were a small daredevil group trying out a DPV.
To steal a quote: “I wonder what would happen if we filled the pool with swimmers and divers, chucked in a d.p.v and let a couple of amateurs hoof it up and down the pool. I’ll take my first aid box; it’ll be fine.”
Everyone behaved themselves and had a good time, no limbs were lost and the trainees even learnt something with the distraction of motorised vehicles in the pool.
