Before the new season starts in earnest its time to checkout yourself and kit! Why not try it this Tuesday at the pool first!
Dive Planning meeting:
A lively discussion with input from the members, especially the new ones, as to what type of diving they wanted the club to do this year. Many dive sites were proposed with some potential new sites - as well as revisiting the old favourites! It was decided that this year we will run a trip to the Isle of Man in July for a week and a long weekend to Hope Cove in Devon in September. Throughout the year the RIB will operate day diving along the south coast and further on occasion. A warm water trip is proposed in the autumn - most likely to the Red Sea.

Welcome to Paul and Sam who joined this month and are already in training to become Ocean Divers. Also, a slightly belated welcome to Vince and Coryn who joined in back in October and have now finished their OD pool training and Theory so are ready for their first sheltered water dive - well done!
