Well, it’s almost
time for some of our Tek Divers to further advance and hone their deep diving
skills and qualifications under the watchful eye of Paul Toomer of Matrix
Diving in Malta. www.divingmatrix.co.uk/TecLab.aspx
Oct 11, Peter O Reilly, John O Hanlon,
John Lowery, Terry Whiteside and Kevin
Pollard will land in Malta and on Sunday for a whole week they will be learning
and honing their skills, whilst taking
in the 29 degree water temperature as they dive the fantastic deep wrecks and
underground passages that Malta has on offer.
All the divers will
undertake personal instruction in the techniques required to add helium to the
breathing gas, whilst using their CCR units. (MOD II). Consequential use of
helium in the breathing gas, like as in Open Circuit diving, will reduce the
narcotic effect as depth increases. Upon successful completion of the course,
this will enable the divers to dive to depths of 60 mtrs.
November 11, four more club divers, David Hankin, Paul Vint, Niall Gonelly
& Peter Graham will join Paul Toomer in Malta for the commencement of their
Open Circuit Normoxic Trimix. This course, like the The MOD II course, this
course also will introduce Helium to the breathing gas in order to lower the
effects of narcosis as the divers dive to deeper depths. The divers will
receive the necessary skills during their week long intensive course that will
enable them to dive safely to depths of 60 mtrs and by carrying out the strict
decompression obligations, return safely to the surface.
December, Gerry Brown, Jimmy Lyons and Frank McDermott will also venture to
Matrix, where they will undertake the pinnacle of CCR Training (MODIII) This is
the ultimate level of training and requires particular skill and mindset to
safely descend to 100+ meters and return safely to the surface, making full use
