Are you Ocean Diver qualified (or equivalent) and want to develop your skills further?
If so you may be interested in becoming a Sports Diver. Divetech are looking to run Sports Diver training (subject to interest) in 2015. If you are interested please contact Divetech using the contact page. Or if you are a club member please contact Alex directly.
For more information about what Sports Diver involves take a look at the BSAC website: http://www.bsac.com/page.asp?section=3305
Alex, Niall, Gordon and Callum took the club RIB out and dived the Bass rock and Craigleith.
Raining and a bit lumpy in the morning but sunny and calm by the afternoon.
Vis was probably about 5mt
On the Bass we saw Octopus, flatfish, lots of lobsters and a Monkfish. Gordon and Callum saw a seal.
Just over a week until Divetech’s first dive (and social) planning night of 2015.
Come along to Milnes Bar on Hanover Street for 7.30pm on Tuesday 10th February to have a say on the diving you want to do this year. Don’t worry if you haven’t planned a dive before, there will be experienced members who can help you plan your first diving trip, whether it is a shore dive in Eyemouth or a club RIB trip in Oban. There is so much exciting diving to be done so come along and make sure you are part of it.
Nibbles will provided to keep you going (as if you needed any more persuasion)!
Looking forward to seeing you there.
Merry Christmas Divetechers. I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful festive season (whether that is diving or not). If anyone has any festive diving photos or news to share then please get in touch.
Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight for a Divetech dinner. Please note that there will be no pub night at Milnes tonight as a result.
At Divetech’s AGM on 14th October, club members voted for the photos to make up Divetech’s 2015 calendar. Thirteen photos were chosen from 36 photos submitted by nine members.
If you are interested in ordering a calendar please place your order with Divetech before 31st October.
Thank you to everyone who attended Divetech’s AGM at Milnes Bar on 14th October. It was great to see so many members there to celebrate the years successes including increased membership, more regular club diving and Ocean Diver training which will conclude this winter.
Building on the success of this years training programme it was agreed to run more try dives early next year followed by a training programme tailored to the needs or new and existing members.
