2015 was a fantastic year for CSAC. We stationed the RIB at QAB marina in Plymouth for 3 months over the summer and for a period from April to September had a diving trip organised every other weekend! Trips included Portland, Skomer marine reserve in Wales, the Eddystone light house as well as many of the sites local to Plymouth like the famous James Egan Lane and HMS Scylla.
There was also a wide range of social activities, CSAC is locally renowned as not only a fantastic and active dive club but also a great social club. Some have said it’s as much of a (responsible!) drinking club as well as a dive club. The events included numerous meals, Friday nights out (locally called the Friday Night Shouts), barbecues, summer camping trips and more. Many of which will be repeated in 2016
The training schedule was jam packed over the year too. We had many successful skill development courses including twin-set diver, automated external defibrillator (AED), photography workshop and other diving/technical courses.
2016’s dive plan is already looking jam packed. Head over to the Calendar and take a look. Its sure to be as much of an action packed year. As approved at the AGM we should hopefully have a brand new RIB by next season too, a lot to look forward to.
