Hi all
Our February general meeting is on next Tuesday 19th at 8.00pm at The Water Rat Hotel, 256 Moray Street, South Melbourne. As usual we will be in the bar from 7.00pm for a meal and a drink beforehand.

This months guest speaker will be a representative from Maritime Safety Victoria who will deliver a presentation entitled “ Beyond Compliance”
This prezzy will be an important one for our boat owners and anyone who dives from our boats. We have been invited to bring a PFD along on the night for a practice session on how to conduct the annual inspection required for the cylinder inflated PFD type. This is something that we all need to know how to do correctly.

In addition to our guest speaker we have a backlog of photo contests to judge with our October, November, December and January comps to vote on.

Hope to see you there on the night

Great Victorian Fish Count 2018

VSAG will once again be supporting the Great Victorian Fish Count. We hope to survey some or all of the following dive sites:

The Hurricane

A Graveyard Wreck

Lonsdale Wall

The Pinnacle

The George Kermode

 

 

VSAG Diving

At long last we got the boats out again today with 3 full boats diving the Pinnacle and George Kermode out of Newhaven, Phillip Island.

Really shocked at how much the George Kermode has deteriorated.

We even found time to hop further down the coast and check out the wreck of the Speke.

Hopefully boating season is on again now.
