I've been asked to run an Advanced Wreck course on Mon 9th - Wed 11th July.

I need at least one more person, preferably two, to make it worth while.

It will be run in Weymouth using Scimitar Diving Ltd Hardboat Diving Made Easy

The course will cover wreck penetration and line laying. It will involve a combination of shallow water skills dives and 30-35m wrecks to practice the skills.

The course will be £350 plus your own expenses.

Details of the course standards are below.
