BSA photo/videographer Roger attended yesterday’s morning staff meeting.  His partner, Brian, met us at breakfast.  I then introduced them to the scuba staff and off they went.  They took pictures and/or videos of the crews gearing up, loading the boat, diving, eating and playing on the boat, diving, unloading and securing gear.  Today they will be shadowing one or more sailing crews.  Then they will go to the Brinton Environmental Center to take more photos and videos.

The weather was great.  The divers went to Ham, Cheeca Rocks and Capt. Grumpy.  The sailors on shore leave spent the day kayaking, small boat sailing, tubing and playing volleyball.  Today was Captain Teri Wells’ first lesson in operating the tubing boat.

Mr. Scott Wyatt from the IT department of the BSA National Office is on property to resolve some of our computer issues.  I certainly hope he is successful; our internet, network and overall computer system is a disaster.

Captain Rich found time to call Newton Dive Boats.  They said the Newton 36′ Dive Special being purchased for the Scuba Certification program should be ready around 11 May.  We were hoping to have it by 01 May for christening at the Tarpon Tournament.

I didn’t sleep very well Monday night, had a killer headache all yesterday and essentially accomplished nothing.  Today will be better.

I hope you have a good day.
