Open water Season 2009

25 02 2009

With the pool-training module complete, the students of the maritime archaeology program commercial diving course have been diving in the chilly waters of Denmark since December. The dive site chosen is near the east Jutland town of Fredericia, close to the Lillebeltbroen (Little belt bridge), which is also popular with recreational divers.
Course participants have been completing tasks such as rescue scenario drills, underwater navigation, lifting and rigging while at times dealing with currents and near freezing water temperatures. Not all is lost however, with Scuba Force drysuits and Fourth Element undersuits* students are kept dry and warm to focus on the tasks at hand.

* Not just a publicity plug, the equipment works really well!
