Last June (2014) 11 TSAC members enjoyed a diving holiday on the Isles of Scilly with Dive Scilly, Based in St. Mary’s. Our skipper Dave McBride made sure we had a memorable time on our boat Tiburon. Here’s club member Ian’s review of the week.

Last Friday 15 February, 8 members of TSAC attended the Scuba Trust lectures at the Royal Geographical Society. Emmy Award winning cameraman, Michael Pitts and television presenter Paul Rose, talked about the unusual and sometimes dangerous dives that they undertake to bring underwater wonders to our TV screens.
The Dive Lectures are held in support of the Scuba Trust – a charity devoted to giving people with physical disabilities an equal opportunity to experience the pleasure and excitement of scuba diving and the underwater world.
An unexpected pleasure was bumping into ex-club member Jane Morgan, who was exhibiting and selling her amazing photos. You can check out Jane’s work here.
A really good turn out for this one including Colin, Peggy, Ian & new wife Becky coming up from the South and Ewen mucking up his brand new car on the dirt track. One of our group was so impressed he joined a shooting club the following week.
A lovely sunny day down in the woods at Headley with the local ‘Southern Comfort’ rednecks making us look a bit uncomfortable at first. We were soon up and running though after a very detailed safety talk and shooting those pigeons willy nilly, well, Roger was.
After lunch, a few of us relaxed enough to put Roger in the shade and even Steve bagged a brace.
Six TSAC members went to London Diving Chamber in February to experience a dry dive to 40m. We changed into blue scrubs (only marginally more attractive than your average dry-suit) and went through a safety briefing, before clambering in to the chamber. Once inside, we had to don ear protectors as the decompressor makes quite a noisy hiss.
