After last week’s day off, normal service has been resumed although there were one or two moments on the way out (and back) where this didn’t seem a good idea at all. The sea state wasn’t bad as in dangerous but it was certainly lumpy and didn’t make for a comfortable ride. Still we got there (to the Taha) and had a couple of nice dives. The engine room is still proving elusive although Mike and Uwe are making progress. The galley has yielded a couple of plates and the bridge telegraph still awaits cleaning and polishing. It was also good to see two full boats – 13 divers in total. Nice also to see the barracudas are still there in force. There was also a lionfish which are not common on this coast.
For the first time there some other divers on the wreck – a team from DSDC came out half way through the day. Hope you enjoyed the wreck guys – we’ll forgive the near collision with our boat!
Some of you may remember Michelle and Peter Wright who were members here a few years back. Michelle and Peter now live in Australia and have sent the following:
In less than 14 days we’ll be running the Noosa Half Marathon. But we thought, why run just for ourselves? So we're trying to raise some money for the Cancer Council Queensland at the same time. Any contributions welcome!

To finish a quiz question:
You’re back at the club after a day’s diving. You find yourself clutching a sweaty item of underwear that you don’t want anywhere near sensitive parts of your body. Do you:
a. Take home and put through the wash (possibly several times) or
b. Hang up in the equipment room
The person who answers b. can expect a 10 Dirham fine on Tuesday!
