Blast from the past

Friday – Early morning pool sessions then off to Stoney Cove at lunch. The most perfect day; sunshine and some returning friends n students, great to see Kelly, Caroline, Carl and Nick, and of course the Jedi master(see photos below). We almost had the cove to ourselves, it was bliss and great viz.


Thursday First aid and New Divers

Thursday – Welcome to Steven, Jaeson, Richard, Phil and Kevin (the new EFR narrator) form north of the border, and well done on your First Aid course (see photo) today. Pool sessions tonight for PADI Discover scuba, well done Nikki n Sara. Check out the Dive Club calendar new events being added !! 


Night time Dive time

Wednesday – Night dive at Stoney Cove (see photos), water was warm but wind made it chilly at the surface. Well done to Zoe n Mike on their PADI Open Water qualification. The nights are closing in now, certainly the advent of Autumn.



Busy day for all at Aquatechnique

Tuesday – Toasty warm for me in the pool with D/M trainees Tony n Andy, well done on skill circuit and briefs. Em was running dive trip to Northern pit, I get a nosebleed north of Nottingham, very windy apparently, SMBs had fun like Zepelins, hope you all enjoyed it ! Thanks to Richard at MARES for staff training day at shop for girls, can’t wait for our new stock of MARES drysuits, they look the biz !


Let the force be with you !

Monday – First Aid/EFR course this am and pm. Chris managed the perfect comatose body for the course, as still recovering from Sundays diving. Em managed to mimic a traction patient on the course as a result of the slope at Dosthill. Congrats to the Jedi master who has finally felt the force, and has become a PADI Divemaster professional. Well deserved and well earned, thanks 4 all the help. Well done Vince Food !! (see photo hmmm standard AQT pose) ——>




Chris gives photo posing classes as an add on to the standard lectures, as you can see above, even the Jedi has adopted it. (however the haircut is his own)


Dosthill Dive Trip

Sunday – Trip to Dosthill (dozzi) quarry, a damp,dismal n dreary start to the day but brightened up by the array of intrepid adventurers across all generations. Well done Sam, Lewis, Tom and of course the Ollie (hope the MaccyDs ploy worked). Thanx to Heath n Ruth, Gazza n Paul C. Some good photos see album below and more to follow.See Facebook and Twitter for more photos !
