I could never see the point in QR weights - why would you want a piece of equipment that could easily leave you unavoidably positively buoyant?

Now I know. It's not for divers. It's for the poor suckers who take part in a pool fun night and do the old BSAC A-test of two lengths wearing a weightbelt. And get loaded down with 8kg of lead.

Reassuring tho it is to know there are lots of people around capable of rescuing you if you drown, it's far easier all round if you just finish the second length and dump all lead before you go down for the third time

Still came first tho - mainly because of the underwater breath-holding event, where I managed one minute 3 seconds
