The first portion of Aquanaut training is the swim test. Aquarius staff brought is to the local pool for a 400m swim, 25m underwater swim, 10 minute tred, and mask don and ditch. I was very relieved to get over the swim test. Even though I had practiced, I would have liked to get a few more practice swims in before the real thing!
After the swim test we did our checkout dive. It was so great to get in the almost 80 degree water after the 50 degree water in Nahant MA!
In all Training Day #1 was busy but fun. I'm looking forward to the next two weeks, especially tomorrow's Diving Helmet training!
