VPDC Dry Suit Course

Description

The waters around Cornwall never get that cold but in the winter the temperature can fall to within the range when drysuits are often worn. Drysuits work a bit differently to wetsuits as they are full of air, which unlike water, can be compressed and can move around within the suit. This can lead to buoyancy issues which in turn can cause safety problems.

For those who want to dive in dry suits without needing a full PADI speciality accreditation, we offer a course consisting of a pool and a sea dive that provides the instruction needed to dive safely in a dry suit in UK waters. The pool session allows the diver to gain an appreciation of the weight required to wear a dry suit to allow sufficient air to be introduced to maintain warmth and the way in which buoyancy is controlled. The sea session allows this learning to be practically applied and to make sure that the diver can stay warm and safe while dry suit diving.

Well the rib is getting closer to coding and being in the water, all equipment now on the boat just waiting for engine service first. It’s booked in just waiting for them to do it.
VHF course done by a couple of us so we can use the vhf radio if needed legally.

Great 50 mins underwater on the club dive, decided to go on the old Drager semi closed rebreather, I do like the peace and quiet!
Great to see so many Club and non club members joiningus just to enjoying scuba diving and the wildlife of underwater Cornwall.
Water is still 16 degrees and visibility about 6 meters, -what more can you ask for on a Sunday!
If you want to try the Drager we do offer our own course, no PADI speciality as PADI are not accepting any new instructors for this course.
See you all soon I hope.

All divers enjoyed their night dive tonight, visibility and conditions were good and the sea wildlife was out in plenty for them.

Guess we had better schedule another one if enough interest. Just let us know.
