The Vobster IANTD and PADI training teams joined forces on Saturday for a comprehensive review of our risk assessment, team communication, student safety and quality of diving education. There are some excellent plans for 2016, including a community for Vobster students.

We also, just for once, all got in for a dive and practical training session together! We're looking forward to a great 2016, with courses available from Open Water through AOW and Deep, Rescue and Divemaster to technical diving, CCR diver and Technical Diving instructor.

The training session was enhanced by concentrating on the Human Factors affecting student comfort, capacity to learn and dive safety - thanks Gareth Lock.

I would personally recommend 'Human Factors in Diving' as an extremely beneficial course for all dive centre managers looking to improve staff training.

Cheers, Tim

Our friends from the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance have been in touch to express their gratitude for the amazing generosity that so many of you showed at last year's record-breaking Vobster Santas event. Thanks to your kindness, we raised almost 1200 for the Air Ambulance from sales of raffle tickets alone. In anyone's book, that's an amazing achievement!

The Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance receives no government or lottery funding whatsoever so every single penny that they raise through events like Vobster Santas makes such a difference. We'd also like to extend our thanks to the companies that donated prizes to the raffle draw - those involved included Apeks, Fourth Element, Hollis, light-for-me.com, Sea&Sea UK, Miflexhoses, Otter Watersports Drysuits, VMS - Vobster Marine Systems, GUE Courses From James Sanderson and Centurion Diving. Thank you to you all!

Jeremy Clarkson hates them, but here's the Vobster caravan, aka Pete's Love Shack, bucket list dive for the VQCP. Thanks again Marcus Blatchford

Marcus tempts us with another viztastic shot, this time of the Jacquin at 18m. Cheers, Tim

Viz and Temp report: This shot from Marcus Blatchford say it all - a rare opportunity to cruise around the Jesters - each of these is 3m tall and over 10m apart. The temp is also still a very diveable 8 degrees (7.9 if we want to be precise). Cheers, Tim

Sentinel RedHead try dives this Saturday - one space has just become available - any takers? Special RedHead intro price of £50. Cheers Tim

The viz continues to astound with reports of upto 20m of crystal clear water to enjoy. Want proof? Check out these awesome photos from talented underwater photographer and Vobster regular John Price - these were taken on Wednesday and show the second wheelhouse in 24m of depth. As you can see, 'Jester Henge' (as we affectionately call it) can clearly be seen in the background.

So who's coming diving this weekend? Fresh water diving doesn't get much better than this folks and there's never been a better opportunity to enjoy the superb conditions :-)

More proof from the 24m level - this is the yacht 'Poppy' over on the far side near the Jesters. All Jesters can be seen from the deep wheelhouse, which indicates viz of 15m in places! Both the far side of the quarry and the crushing works can be seen from the deep wheelhouse in the middle. I have only once seen viz like this at Vobster and never lasting more than a week - this has been two weeks now. Cheers, Tim

Great images by Michael Thomas from the CDG skills event yesterday. A great day to be underwater with some fine visibility.
