17 March 2012 - After her first engine service, Honor completed her first sea trials by taking 7 divers out to dive the protected wreck site of HMS Invincible. Engine and boat behaved flawlessly, though the same couldn’t be said for the radio (Solent Coastguard couldn’t hear us!) or the swanky touchscreen GPS which didn’t work when soaking wet and poked with a wet finger! More work for the boat officer.

July 2012

We are sad to report that Steve Nash, NASAC founder member, fundraising officer and all round good egg (Steve, that’s not a reference to your waistline :-) ) has decided to stand down from the club. As  many club members will be aware, Steve has been signed off from diving for some time and so has decided to make a clean break with the entire diving scene.

Steve, many thanks for all you have done for the Club. Whatever you do next,  and wherever you turn your talents next, we wish you the very best.
