Three Coral Reef Sailing crews returned to the Florida Sea Base yesterday to end their 2012 spring adventure. Five crews return today and two new Coral Reef Sailing and one Sea Exploring crew will arrive to begin their adventures.
The scuba divers had a decent day Thursday. They completed dives at Victory and Davis before returning to the base for dinner. After dinner they departed again and completed a night dive at Alligator Reef.
I am going diving this morning with staff members Connor Closs, Rob Rinaldo, and Phillip Ferrier for PADI Open Water Training Dives 1 and 2. Captain Dennis Wyatt has volunteered to drive us. We really have to hustle; the guys have to receive Coral Reef Sailing crews that will return to the Florida Sea Base at 1400 (2 pm).
The weather should be very good for the next few days. The wind should drop to 10 – 15 knots under sunny skies and 84ºF afternoons. The water temperature is 77ºF.
Steven Raymond and Mike Roesel are off to their last day of the PADI Instructor Development Course. They will take their Instructor Exams Saturday and Sunday.
Have a great weekend.
