Getting back into the water

Kit serviced? Check.

Days getting longer? Check.

Weather improving? Hmmm….

With Winter behind us many Divetech members began getting back into the water between February and April to test kit and ease into the diving year. Some were lucky enough to do their first dives of the year in warm waters (lucky devils) while others braved the slightly cooler waters of East and West Coast Scotland (surely Dunbar and Loch Long are Scotland’s are just as exotic as the Red Sea and the Caribbean?).

Divetech’s first official club dive of the year took place on 17th April with the club RIB heading to Bass Rock for some scenic dives. The visability may not have gin clear but our divers got in and Shaun got a chance to practice his new Boat Handling skills after successfully completing the course at Port Edgar earlier in the year.

May this be the first of many Divetech club dives.
