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

VSAG Fiji 2019

Hi allIf anyone is interested in joining the club trip to Fiji in June now is the time to commit and get your booking in. The trip is a two resort trip with the first leg a couple of nights at Barefoot Kuata Resort including up to 8 dives, 3 of which are the resorts key note Bull Shark feeding dives.  The second leg is 7 nights at Mantaray Island Resort including 10 dives and a great chance of seeing Manta Rays. I did this trip the year before last and can highly recommend it.

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.

Continuing the clubs focus on Safety we have now taken delivery of three more Oxygen kits. These will be located on Peter Galvin’s, John Ashley’s and Grant Callow’s boats for the coming diving season. Together with the existing two sets, one of which is located at Scuba Doctors and one at my place in Frankston South we should now have the capability to put two divers onto O2 long enough for medical assistance to be reached on all of our diving days.
