A great few days, and nights, was had by all in the Sub Aqua Club. The final number travelling was 16, including 2 instructors from Cork Sub Aqua Club. We were lucky to get a dive in on Wednesday afternoon at Zetland Pier, which helped the trainees get those all important log-books signed up by completing a snorkel-the rest had the chance to spot some marine life below surface. Thursday was to be a busy day with 3 dives planned in two different dive sites. Again, the first was used to get the trainees' snorkels finished with. After lunch, everyone got another dive in at Zetland before we moved to 'Dave's Pier' for our evening dive seeing plenty of Crab, fish and Sea Urchins. Friday morning, the heads weren't looking to great but we managed to get a last and final dive incorporating the Exam for the trainees again at Zetland, before we headed on the road home. A special thanks to Dave O'Riordan and Renes Gonzalez from Cork Sub Aqua Club for their support and to Patrick & Eileen of Hungry Hill Lodge for the accomodation and bottle fills. Allihies in West Cork is next on the agenda, hopefully another few days diving. Details to follow.
