Sophie Hastie

Recruitment officer

As Recruitment Officer Sophie is the first point of contact for people interested in the club. She arranges try out dives in the pool, responds to enquiries from people interested in joining the club, and facilitates the joining process.

Most memorable dive moment: Being surrounded by reef sharks and giant trevally on a night dive in the Maldives. They were using our torch beams to hunt. It was amazing. Or maybe diving with seals on the Isles of Scilly.

Most embarrassing dive moment: Being trained to use a surface marker buoy and unclipping it from its reel by mistake. It floated away, presumably lost for ever. When we got back to the boat we were greeted with “have you lost something?”…

After a dive: Sophie enjoys chilling out with her buddies and a beer or G&T

When not diving: Sophie can usually be found talking about diving. Or knitting.

You may not know: Sophie is a very good knitter, but she hasn’t yet worked out how to combine diving and knitting!
