Our final Openwater Divers for 2009 earned their stripes during the bank holiday weekend. This course started two weekends previously, on October 10th & 11th. While weather conditions were somewhat less than idyllic, we conducted the openwater training dives from our boat at a very sheltered Inis Barna. Dogfish, lobsters, conger eels and colourful corkwing wrasse all came out to show their support for the student divers. “Perfect buoyancy”, was the comment of one spectator. High praise coming from a fish!
Congratulations to Ailis Fagan, TJ Redmond, Lewis Nuttall, Jamie Riley and Aaron O’Grady; all bona fide members of the Underwater Appreciation Society.
Well done to all of the Openwater Divers who qualified with us in 2009. An excellent effort was put in by all and we really look forward to seeing you back here soon. Indeed, many of you have already completed or signed up to further training with us.
Looking forward to 2010 already!
