Instructor Specialties for the February IDC are completed
It took a while after the IDC to get going, but today we completed the last Instructor Specialty Training segment from the recent February IDC. The weather conditions weren't looking that great today, but it turned out to be fine day after all, sunny and hot, just as February was all month long, we just had a quick shower on the way back around Koh Phangan.
We started out with the Night Dive Specialty, for which we were joined by Steven and Mikhail, from the December IDC of last year. Above are the Men in Black, ready for nocturnal adventures underwater, from left to right; Steven, Preben, Gav, Krit, Mikhail and myself.
The Underwater Navigation Specialty
was on the schedule for Preben
, they can be seen on this picture above practicing Navigation patterns on land at Chaweng
Beach, using their compasses.
The same day as we did the Navigation dive, we also completed Search & Recovery Specialty Instructor
dives from Chaweng
Beach and we usually combine this with some clean up activities, Steven is in this picture with some improvised Search & Recovery utensils, found during the dive, which he's using to collect garbish
with. We filled 4 big bags of garbish
that day! We were paying some respect to Project AWARE
