Met my BSAC trainer today. He outlined the Sports Diver course, lots of weekly lectures and we'll be ready to head into Open Water in December/January. As some of the others are still in wetsuits, we might have to go somewhere else (he said). Somewhere else? Somewhere warm - Spain or Malta. So, it looks like I'll come back from Madeira where, weather willing, I'll put a few dives in and set off a week later for some more.
