... I realised I had left the base plate of the Trailermate on the ground. U turn time and back we go. I retraced our steps and managed to go the wrong way into the car park.

So we set off and travelled the hour and half to the dive site, completing all the usual paperwork and waivers as we went. Then as we reached the dive site the crew went into a slightly confusing hyperdrive. Kit and dive guide allocation, pick up weight belt, get kitted up, a rapid and not very informative dive brief, jump in and we were off! It ...
