Mike took a boat out to the Dara and Nasteran at the weekend while I was busy elsewhere but I am short of a written report so I can’t say much. We did convene at the club later so I can say that the current was pretty strong on the Dara (as you’d expect on a spring tide) and the viz wasn’t spectacular. The current had calmed down by the time they reached the Nasteran so presumably they’d hit slack water. The four flying the flag were Mikes A and D, Richard and Katharina.
Connie and Tim did their first open water dives with Janette and evidently did very well. Mabruk!
Unfortunately I have to report the untimely death of Forrester last night. His partner Valerie had advised us a couple of weeks ago that he was very ill and did not have long, an assessment that has proved sadly accurate. Forrester was an eccentric character who was nevertheless very proud of his dive club and was much missed when he went to Australia. We all assumed he would drop by and see us again at some point – sadly this was not to be.
