The weather

Good morning divers & divettes,

Every morning we check the weather before going out on the East Coast. Well, this is normally a nice thing to do, but the last week it was telling us "bring a raincoat" - so we did. Heay rain is a bit of a challenge for the captain.The divemaster tows a surface marker buoy, so the captain knows where the group is and the distance he has to stay away from the group. But sometimes, in heavy rains, he can not see the buoy anymore, so the captain has to a bit stay closer to the buoy. You see that sailing a boat is also a job when the divers are down there looking at all the fish!
