CEDU Certification #OW003
Be it Known that in the vicinity of King Harbor, California, Jane Rogan took the Plunge and entered the Ocean in dry suit configuration and with the FEOR as the sole source of life support. It was but a simple scaling of a four foot high concrete barrier wall, and then a descent down rock boulders to the ocean water waiting below. Timing the surge and the passing of coastal patrol craft just perfect, she made a flawless entry.
Dive proceeded as planned. All certification requirements were met. (1) Enter ocean, (2) Submerge, (3) Breathe in, then breathe out. (4) Repeat #3 until you suck the oxygen tank empty, (5) Exit ocean.
Any other activities accomplished is considered Extra Credit. On this dive Jane earned Extra Credit by discovering and playing with discarded fishing rod, collecting fish bones, recovering a mushroom anchor, (just what our new dinghy needed), identifying over ten species of marine life, and killing two of them.
Jane has earned a great big Congratulation for her accomplishment. We at the CEDU wish her well in her rebreather diving career, and look forward to see her progress in the never ending stepping stones of more advanced certifications. (Such as CCR-OW2, Night Rebreather, Rebreather Navigation, the Deep Oxygen Course, Rebreather Close Quarter Combat, and the Introduction to Underwater Demolitions,( aka the Field Expedient Wreck/Reef Creation Course), just to name a few.
