1000 not out

I am pleased to report that I had my 1000th and 1001st dives in Porthkerris, Cornwall, last Wednesday July 8th. Both were shore dives on the fantastic Dwarna Reef, where cuttlefish, corkwing wrasse etc were much in eveidence. My buddy was Darren from the dive centre.

SallyI have enclosed a photo, but being a responsible diver(!) I had to wait until after the 1001st dive for the Bubbly. Without turning this into an Oscar acceptance speech, or a retirement speech, I would like to take this opportunity to Thank all those club members who I have dived with over the years especially those most involved in my initial training in 2001 and 2002, namely, Stan, Tim and Prich. I reckon they had the hardest job! Thanks also to everyone who organised the marvellous trips I’ve been lucky enough to go on both here and abroad and to those of you who trusted me enough to come on my trips.

Wishing you all Happy Diving,

    Congratulations Sally! Thank you for being so welcoming when I joined the club last year and buddying me on my first BSAC dive. You are a star!

  2. Well done and congratulations Sally!
    It has been an absolute pleasure to have dived with you and you have always been kind even when it was not deserved!
