Pisces News: 4th December 2014

Ye Olde Southeaster strikes again… inshore on the Bay is so brown that it looks like a muddy river!  We’re so eager to get into the water that many of us strongly considered a shore dive at Long Beach before we saw the colour! Everyone will just have to wait until Sunday. We predict that with this long and sustained southeaster, Hout Bay will turn nice and blue again so our new boat will just have to journey to that side for her maiden voyage!

 

Despite the windy weather, Neil has been teaching Rescue and Carel will have some Open Water students tomorrowmorning. Many Open Water and Advanced students were in the shop this week working towards completion to be able to enjoy their new certifications over the December Holiday along with some working hard on their Wreck and Deep Specialities! Keep up the good work, students!
