January 2023 Current Bubbles Newsletter
By: Owen Autry
Dear Dolphin Divers of Sacramento, January 2023
I hope everyone had a joyful Christmas and a safe and spectacular New Year! I am hopeful that
2023 will be a great year of diving and prosperous for all. I believe that we are on track for a
wonderful year, as the board meets this week and prepares to pack our diving calendar with some
new and different events, and some of the old favorites we enjoy every year, like the Ocean Cove
Labor Day camping and diving trip.
Again, if you have something you would be interested in doing,
please email the board. We are always looking for new guest speakers that will help you with
expanding your insight for adventure as well as learning the vast knowledge of what is in the ocean to
explore and learn more about.
This is also the time when we start the process of looking for people that might be interested in
serving on the Board for 2023/2024; the new Board term will start in April 2023. If you have any
interest in serving on the Board, please reach out to us. Remember, we are a club of volunteers, and
our club is for the love of scuba diving, and to help promote and grow this recreational activity.
If you have any fellow divers not in the club, please encourage them to join and participate in a great
and friendly diving club. Growing the club helps all of us to enjoy more events at a discounted price,
with the added benefit of making new friends! Let’s start the year off right by bringing in a friend to
show them what we are all about as a club.
Now, with the New Year upon us, have you made any plans to go on a dive trip to a far-off land and
sea? Dolphin Scuba Center has some great dive trips planned, with slots available for your next dive
destination. Call them at: (800) 436-5744 or go on the Dolphin Scuba Center website
(www.dolphinscuba.com) for more information. If you are having trouble deciding on your next
trip…go in and talk to the staff at Dolphin, so they can help you find a trip that meets your needs in
the world of diving.
I would like to wish all a Happy New Year and I hope to see you at some of our great activities in 2023
I would also like to thank the board members for their hard work in keeping the club running
and keeping us all in the water doing what we love and enjoy.
Please note, our next Dolphin Club General Meeting will be held in-person on Wednesday, January
18 th , 2023, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm at Round Table Pizza (9500 Greenback Lane in Folsom), and via
Zoom for those who would prefer to attend remotely. Marilyn will send information the day of the
meeting. Everyone is welcome to join the meeting!
Hope to see you in the water, and bubbles up!!
QUOTES FROM THE SEA
“What all divers should remember is that SCUBA diving is a fun exploration of life. When you dive, don’t take yourself so seriously. Loosen up and relax. The point of SCUBA diving is not to focus on yourself; it’s to focus on the beauty of the underwater world. There’s nothing to
accomplish on dives.”
Safety Officer’s Message
By: Brad Freelove
Is it time for a refresher scuba course
As you sit around the television watching Linus and Lucy or the 49ers win a game, a commercial pops up with an enticing scene of some tropical vacation spot. Your mind drifts off to diving in the warm tropical waters of Cozumel, Cuba, or the Philippines. You realize that you have not made a dive in a year and NEED to get back in the water, NOW! Dolphin Scuba has a trip to someplace warm in 2 months. Between now and then you need to get your reservations made, your equipment serviced, and a dozen other things that need completion before you can take off on your trip to heaven. And then reality steps in. You cannot remember how to hook up your regulator to your tank. How do you clear your mask? What will the dive computer tell me? If you cannot remember how to assemble your equipment, how to operate your equipment, cannot remember where your C-card is or where you made your last dive at, or you are still a newbie diver and have not made a dive in a year or so, it is time to take a refresher scuba course….. NOW!
You can probably come up with several reasons to not take a refresher course. They all sound valid to you. Just remember that your life or the life of your special someone could be in jeopardy if you mess up. Take a refresher course.
Under supervision and in a warm clear pool, you can relearn forgotten skills and remember how your computer works. Both classroom and pool work will increase your comfort level, refresh your skills and knowledge base. If you have not made a dive in many years, consider taking another scuba class. Not a refresher course but a complete class. Training techniques change with time. The equipment you purchased 10 years ago may be outdated. Something much better might be available. A complete scuba class will get you updated with a lot of the changes.
Christmas Party Recap
Special Awards for Special People
If you did not make the annual Christmas party, you missed out on a heck of a good time. A newly refurbished party room, good food, and a great group of friends got together to celebrate the passing of 2022 and the promise of an exciting new year that is just about to arrive. Over one third of our members showed up to fill the room to capacity.
Special thanks to Owen and Sandy. They put together a fun time for all. Santa (Jack Millard) showed up and passed out some candy. Each table had a prize for some lucky person and a group contest resulted in several bottles of wine handed out to the winners. As always, we did hold our raffle. Mike Johnson, owner of Dolphin Scuba, donated a ton of stuff. He also gave us some great prizes at or below cost. Regulators, computers, gear bags, fins, masks, and camera housings were raffled off. When the night was over, there were some very happy faces.
Each year, Dolphin Divers takes a few minutes to let Mike know that we really do appreciate his support. DDS recognizes that Mike helps us out in a variety of ways. Discounts, free air fills, travel advice….well, you get the idea. Mike and staff help however they can. Mike, thanks for all your support!
Part of the evening is dedicated to the awards ceremony. During November and December, DDS members had the opportunity to vote for Member of the Year. This year, Joe Morgan, our newsletter editor, was recognized as having made contributions to the club that go way above the average member. While there were several members receiving votes, Joe was the ultimate winner. CONGRATULATIONS, JOE!
Renee Viehmann received her member of the year award for 2020. Renee is our web master. She keeps our website up and running and takes care of all things related to being web master. Thanks, Renee for almost 20 years of being on the Board!
Four other members received awards for their photos. Renee Viehmann, Layni Little, Brad Freelove, and Kenny Carraher all received amazon gift cards for their photo prowess. They have bragging rights for next year.
The final award for the evening was issued to Kenny Carraher. As winner of the “big fish” award, Kenny picked up an Amazon gift card and an award for his winning fish. Nice job, Kenny!
All too soon, the party was over. While many of us were heading out the door, Owen and Sandy were picking up the mess that we had created. Table decorations, empty boxes, and anything else left behind were gathered up. Thanks to the efforts of Sandy and Owen, all of us had a great time. Santa had packed up his stuff and drove off into the night. Thanks Santa Jack.
The entire Board of Directors of Dolphin Divers of Sacramento want to wish all our members a Happy New Year! We have a couple new dive events planned for 2023 as well as our usual stuff that should keep you interested during 2023. Take care and have a great new year!
Worst dive of my life, and what it taught me:
I want to tell you about the worst dive of my life, and what it taught me.
Key Largo, Sept 26th. It was a blustery day, Hurricane Ian was coming and we were squeezing in a last day of open water before we “closed the ocean” for the storm.
We had four dives planned, each with a specific objective. The first dive was a deep dive on the Spiegel Grove Wreck to qualify as a “Deep Specialty Instructor” with specific tasks to achieve. The tasks required a few things I usually don’t carry, An empty plastic water bottle (to show effects of pressure to the students, a bag of skittles candy to show the effects of color change at depth. The skittles easily fit in my pocket but the water bottle did not really fit anywhere. Obviously, it was positively buoyant.
There are five of us completing the class together that will enter first, then the few pleasure divers who are braving the storm will follow after.
Entry conditions were on the more challenging side, there was a large swell and there was very heavy current. The crew had a tag line off the stern, from there we would follow a line to the mooring, and use the mooring line to descend to the wreck to prevent being blown off the site.
Now that the scene is set, I will relay my dive:
I am the last of my group to enter. I giant stride in, and immediately am in a school of jellies, one hits me square in the face, as more impact me elsewhere. I shake my head to get one off my face and in the process my mask comes dislodged and immediately floods. I scramble to grab the tag line, so I don’t drift away while fixing the issue. One hand on the line, I switch to snorkel, with the way the waves are moving me I realize I would prefer to just have nothing in my mouth, so I spit out the snorkel. The boat crew begins to shout at me to put my snorkel in. I am in no position to explain what all is going on, so I just signal “I’m ok” to them and resume what I was doing. I am not sure what they see, but they continue to shout at me to either put in my reg or snorkel. I simply cannot, even if I had wanted to without either dropping the line or stopping fixing my mask. So, I figure they are just going to have to wait for an explanation later. I resume trying to clear my mask. In the current my second stage begins to free flow. My mask is still half filled with water. I fix the second stage and with only one free hand attempt to secure it safely to myself to stop it from a second free flow event.
I finally get my mask clear and realize the rest of the class is already at the descent line and in the time it had taken me to cure my three issues that a pleasure diver has gotten in between me and them, and the class think it’s me, and begin their descent. I begin to hurriedly attempt to catch up by quickly moving up the line, but now there are multiple divers in between me and the rest of the class. As I attempt to pass them I have to move from side to side of the line by going under it each time.
Due to needing to go under multiple times, I put my second stage in my mouth but realize I am sucking a lot of gas already. On one of these under-the-line switches the water bottle I have comes free and a diver behind me grabs it. Gives it back, but there is really nowhere for me to put it for positive retention so I awkwardly slide it into my under my BCD. I finally reach the descent line and see that the class is around 30 feet below me and by now I am breathing very heavily from exertion.
I begin my descent. I am dropping like a stone to attempt to catch the class. The water bottle comes loose a second time.
At this point I have to add that in that moment I added shame to my list of dive issues. I am horribly embarrassed by this event, which to others had to look like a manatee floundering in a washing machine with the grace of a dry-heave. I am supposed to be an experienced diver, an Instructor, an example. So on top of the issues actually happening to me, I have added anxiety to the list.
I continue my descent and eventually catch the group, the Course Director asks if I am “ok”, I signal “problem” he waits for a further signal as to what is wrong, I laugh in my head and gesture at myself from head-to-toe. I calm down a bit, and sign “I’m ok.” A diver swims up and hands me my stray water bottle. I laugh in my head again.
I look at my computer, I am at 1800 psi. nine minutes into the dive I have used 1200 psi. My dive plan is to start my ascent at 1300 psi. I do some mental math; I have 500 psi (+/- 13cuft) to use, we are at 80 feet, and even though I have calmed down a bit I am still sucking at least double my usual amount of gas. I have less than seven minutes to stay at depth. I signal my remaining pressure to him, he looks bewildered that I am already that low. We go through the performance requirements, and I signal that I am going up.
Back on the boat I sit mentally abusing myself for the worst dive of my life. I sat there recalling and reliving every grueling second and each horrible mistake I had made. If it hadn’t been a training-dive I would have called the dive before descent. Why didn’t I? Had I put myself in danger? Was I incompetent?
I sat thinking these thoughts and a friend asked what I was looking so serious about and I told him. He began asking me questions about the dive.
- Did I panic? No, I said, I had handled every issue individually and without stress, as naturally as if I had been in a pool.
- Was I ever in danger? I answered No, I was in complete control the entire time, constantly (even if semi- unconsciously) evaluating if the issue was threatening to me and solving each issue in priority of safety.
- Had I put anyone else in danger? No again.
- Had I deviated from my dive plan? No, I dove the exact plan I had made, albeit shorter than intended, all safety points and objectives were met.
- Lastly, why did I continue the dive and not call it? I replied that I didn’t stay in the water out of shame, fear, or a desire to impress. It was a simple calculation that I could still achieve the objective of the dive safely.
Were there issues? Obviously. Could I do better? Yup. That said, I realized that it probably wasn’t as bad as I was making it in my head. Maybe I wasn’t the worst diver to ever don a wetsuit. Maybe.
I can’t thank him enough, he restored my shaken confidence. He reminded me that although the dive had not gone to my idea of what a dive should look like it was still successful, and the dive had taught me a lot about my own mental state when issues arise.
After our surface interval we made our second dive on the Benwood Wreck, completing a mapping project of the wreck as a performance requirement of the “Wreck Specialty Instructor” course. Immediately upon descent I saw a turtle on the wreck and just floated along with him for a solid five minutes. I remembered that this was fun. I then went on to the mapping project. My friend had helped me overcome my shame and restored my confidence I had a very relaxing and fun dive.
-Incidentally the friend who had helped me got a jellyfish sting in his eye on this dive, it eventually was swollen completely shut, but he finished his map before surfacing. (impressive job Anders!)-
We made a third dive that day and did some navigation work, and then the ocean stopped cooperating, waves got crazy, and we had to call off the fourth dive, there was a customer aboard the boat who was extremely sea-sick and we all voted to take him home instead of making our fourth dive. (Matt the nice guy talked us into it) That ended up being my last day diving the ocean in Florida (although we snuck in a couple more at a local cove) I am thankful that I had friends to remind me not to beat myself up, or it would have been months to get my confidence back, if ever.
