Water Temperature: 24C
Weights: 8kg
Max Depth: 9m
Crew: Letizia Barbi, Francesco Barbi, Luca Sartoni

Great visibility, we explored the reef and the sandy floor of the coast. The spot we picked for the base camp was a little tricky to find. However, it turned out as a great location.

The water was plenty of fish and I tried a few deeper dives. I was able to reach 9m, which is my personal record. I had a little trouble compensating at the very beginning, but then it got better and I was quickly able to dive deeper.

Water Temperature: 24C
Weights: 8kg
Max Depth: 3m

This session was not great and I decided to end it after only 20 minutes in the water. I felt a little sick, probably I didn’t let enough time between lunch and the session. Just one hour was not enough this time. Better wait a little longer next time.

Notes

My first time in open water, after just a few lessons at the swimming pool.

Wearing the wetsuit (5mm) was less difficult than expected and my conditioner water solution worked well.

I had 7kg on my belt and it was great.

I practiced many dives and I was able to go as deep as 3.5 meters.
