There are about four places left for the Seasearch course being run Saturday 3rd April in Nottingham. Jules and I will be going so there'll be at least a small YD presence.
Arrive 9.30 for a 10am start, expect to finish around 5-ish

The course is being held at the  Nottingham Adventure Centre, 403 Aspley Lane, Nottingham, NG8 5RR.
There's no diving on the Sunday (as is the norm for these courses) but anybody that come to this course will be invited when the divemasterscuba club get out to the coast seasearching at a later date.

The day will cost £20 which includes all course materials, but not lunch, so bring some cash: there are shops, bakeries, fast food places etc nearby on Aspley Lane.
Ring Josie Pegg on 07769907881, or at the nottingham adventure centre during the day on 0115 929 0707.

More info at the link Seasearch

Cheers
Steve

And a very good course it was too. Not being a gifted marine biologist (unlike Dr stevil) i learnt a lot about classification and the course was well worth the 20 quid. The materials are good too.

Also being run in a dive shop there was also retail opportunities and came away with a very nice new buddy SMB and got a free fill of my twinset.

Being in Nottingham we met up with some of the locals and even got to stay Chez digger post curry and pub. He never did model his leopard skin romper suit much to my disappointment, that one willl have to stay in my imagination.
