Over the past couple of weeks we have had the place brightened up by the addition of a few girls. Marlies Lang CD has been conducting an IDC and IDC Staff course for Gwen, Mia and Claire (staff). Despite the girls having a lot of work on their plate, we managed to make time for a bit of a break and play on sidemount in the pool. This brought a smile to even the most fried of brains. Claire is already quite an experienced tech diver having done her Trimix rating in Sharm el Sheik but had not been in tech config in a while, currently working in Tioman.
We quickly freshened up her skills and went for a nice 30 minute dive to 50M on Sachiko, wish we’d brought Trimix though, as a series of ledges and swim-throughs just below us had sharks gliding underneath us. Never the less it was a beautiful dive with some big tuna passing us by as well as the sharks at depth. Its nice doing tech with girls you get to spend a bit longer down there- in fairness Claire looked like a turtle with the twinset on her back!
