Tuesday night was my second dive at the wraysbury Dive centre. I took advantage of their new diver package (£50 including equipment hire) to continue my diving practice.
I used my own BCD, regs, boots and this time my own weight belt with 12Kg. Felt more trim in the water than the last dive. Only used the dive centres wetsuit, mask and fins.
Met a very helpful diver, Les, who took me on a tour of the lake. Water temperature was about 20 degress and visibility was about 3 metres. Les assures me that at other times of the year/different weather the visibility is very good. Max depth was 6.7M according to my Suunto Vyper Dive computer. Used quite alot of air. Went from 220 PSi to about 75 in a short time but put this down to a little anxiety, the poor visibility and some poor finning.
Next step, may be some more practice dives at Wraysbury and then the advanced open water course including a deep dive.
