Ten minutes; that’s all the time I have this morning.  We are still without internet, email and server connectivity in the Program Office and have NO idea when service will be restored.  Some of the leaders and summer staff are getting anxious and frustrated with us.  Believe me, we are NOT ignoring you on purpose.  We are struggling to work around the issue.  Try to imagine if the shoe was on your foot.  It is tough these days to run a business without access to these systems. 🙁

The wind dropped dramatically yesterday afternoon and made our second dive of the day our best this week.  The Florida Sea Base Scuba Certification crews went to two patch reefs, Captain Grumpy’s and Rocky Top.  Scuba Instructor Richard Goldman rates Rocky Top as his second favorite dive at the Florida Sea Base.  Scuba Instructors Richard Goldman David Kirkenir, Steven Raymond and I have certified 18 PADI Open Water Divers in the past two days.

The Scuba Adventure crews logged two dives yesterday aboard BSA Eagle and BSA Explorer.  The wind was near zero for last night’s dive for some of the Scuba Adventure crews.  Timing is everything.

Five sailing crews were in for shore leave yesterday.  When the dive boats returned to the Florida Sea base harbor, the Scouts were enjoying a leisurely sail in the Hunter 170s.

The wind has picked up again this morning but not as bad as the past several days.  The wind is forecasted to clock to the east which will impact the scuba diving.  Conditions should be near perfect for sailing.  We expect a lot of sun again today and a high around 75.
