Diving on the Edge

So went to this amazing event yesterday with my lovely Jo.
ddrc healthcare event
Before I describe the event I’d like to say that they catered for me, Jo & other Vegans that attended, an amazing vegan lunch & also had soya milk + vegan bars.

Very well organised & awesome staff, much like the RNLI, hopefully your never need to require there services but if you do, it’s reassuring that they are available 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year.
So I have enclosed photos of the events itinerary but the topics covered were.
A caving expedition to “Pearse resurgence” in New Zealand, South Island.
This was an absolutely mind blowing cave dive to around 245m, water temp 6oc & financed solely by themselves.
The amount of work involved in setting up decompression stations & logistics was mind blowing.

Gavin Anthony – Dive Computers for Gas Density

diving class eventThere was a really interesting talk on “Gas Density” & very interesting about the connection between exertion @ depth & DCI.
Listening to Gavin Anthony, it makes a lot of sense & there are dive computers now with gas density algorithms like shearwater. A really humble talk by “midge” Simon midgley from “scuba blue”, about his experience of getting a inner ear decompression sickness.
In part connected to those having “PFO’S” ( patent foramen ovale ) but still there are cases like “midge” that don’t have a PFO.
Amazing talk about a group of technical divers that search for missing wrecks & this was about the discovery of “USS JACOB JONES“.
The wreck had been undiscovered for over 100 years & then discovered by Dom Robinson & his amazing team.
It was laying @ a depth of 115m & was about 60 nautical miles south of Newlyn in Cornwall.

Brian Clargo – Titanic Dive

diving talksLast one I’d like to mention was the talk from Brian Clargo, who had the privileged opportunity to dive down to the wreck of HMS Titanic & was very inspiring, oh if you have a spare £50,000 then you can take a trip your self.
So there were a few other talks that were also equally inspiring but think I’ve narrated a fair overview of the day.
Thank you
