It was a relatively quiet weekend at the Florida Sea Base.  There was a little staff drama Saturday but no one was injured.

Our weather looks great for the coming week with a “slight chance” of showers next weekend.  Otherwise it should be mostly sunny with seasonable temperatures (lows around 76 and highs around 87).

The first of two Captain’s Training sessions (for Captains and Mates in the Coral Reef Sailing, Sea Exploring, Eco Adventure, Order of the Arrow Oceans Adventure, Open Oceans Adventure, and Scuba Liveaboard program) is scheduled for this Thursday, 12 May.

Niccole Sherman from PADI was kind enough to send me copies of over 300 photos taken during the PADI/BSA photo shoot at the Florida Sea Base last month.  The coconut telegraph (now referred to as the wireless coconut) reports that a photo of Divemaster Jessica Arms may be used in one of the PADI Go Pro ads.  I’m sure that several of the photos will be used in articles and marketing pieces by PADI.  Here’s one of my favorites with PADI Instructor Dave Ball supervising gear assembly as his Scuba Liveaboard crew (SLS041611A) prepares for their scuba skills review.  (Click on the photo to enlarge.)

That’s all for today.
