Notes: First dive ever! I joined DUSAC, the Scuba Diving club at Trinity College Dublin, in October 2002. The first couple of months was spent doing lectures and pool sessions. Dive tables galore. This training for the first BSAC grade (Ocean Diver) culminated with a week in Mayo diving and doing assessments and drinking and having a great time.
