If off to Brixham soon Daz, to sort out my weighting.

I will try to remember to post the results of these lovely southerly winds that put pay to todays play on the Riversdale

Thanks Adrian,

Wish the report were for my benefit but I need to get to a pool fairly early tomorrow so can't get down there to appreciate it first hand.

Cheers,
Daz

Brixham breakwater - flat sea, but 2m viz max on ebbing tide. HT tomorrow about 12.00BST. We only went a few metres out, a max depth of 5m. Car park very busy, but there seemed to be a constant change of cars. Oh the joys of the tourist season


I required 12-14 lb on a belt, and doubled up ankle weights to get a horizontal trim with 50bar in the twins. Never thought I would regret having a neoprene suit. I could lower the tanks, but I can just about reach the valves as it is. Cylinders are valve upwards at the moment. Not sure what to do next.

Stick a 5kg P weight on the twins and that should just leave a pound or two on your belt.  Alternatively go straight with a 6kg P weight.

The valve guard I use came from
Ritherdon

P.S Thanks for the report

Thought you'd say that!

I will give it some thought, but would like to see if I can get it sorted 'valve up first'. Then admit defeat and put them the other way.

Hope you have a good day if you have decided to come down.
