An extremely productive weekend in Portland with 12 trainee Ocean Divers, 6 instructors and 2 days of diving completed on Scimitar. Almost all students completed their training and had a great time doing their very first dives in the sea. Each day the boat went out in 4 groups to dive the Countess of Erne and the Sand Dredger. To complete the weekend there was a group meal organised on the Saturday evening. And if that were not enough one of the group not only qualified but also celebrated her 18th birthday on the same day. Well done to everyone and thanks for all the effort put in by students, instructors, helpers and Scimitar skipper and crew.
