The Dive Season Starts Badly
The dive season is getting off to a bad start. Over the easter weekend there have been 3 fatalities around the UK.
This is unusually high. As normal the small numbers make it impossible to draw any conclusions, this news does however come as a timely reminder of the risks of the beginning of the dive season and the need to act appropriately.
As a simple reminder:
- Make sure your kit and in particular your regulators are serviced.
- Build up your diving slowly introducing new kit gradually and building up your depths and dive difficulties over several days of diving.
- Remember the water is cold
- Refresh your skills in the pool and try out all new equipment there as well, ask for the assistance of an instructor!
