Hell's teeth...shark's teeth!
Advanced Diver training at Wittering is anything but toothless
What's the perfect way to finish off a sunny bank holiday? Why, drag your friends up and down a steep shingle beach of course! And so it was that a group of Holborn AD trainees headed down to Wittering to slog up and down the beach in order to perfect their shore rescue skills. A hard day yes, but a good experience also, as you can find out by reading the full trip report in our Going Diving section.
