They Called it Clowns Week. They certainly were!
It all started last year when three divers got together and decided to have a bit of extra fun on their dive holiday. Ian, Sarah and Cindy.
Cindy also know as Cinders, who you may have seen at the dive shows as she's one of the regular staff on our stand. Sarah covered for an absentee on the stand earlier this year at LIDS and Ian also know as Ianto has been diving with us since we started.
The three all met while diving with us in Sharm, when they struck up a friendship with each other, and tend to all come back at the same time to dive together.
Last year, they decided to have a few theme days which I think is very sporting of Ianto due to his senior years, although he looks and keeps well for a man about to turn 60.
The themes were Super Hero Thursday and Tutu Tuesday.
Cinders had plans of topping that this year and went about to gather a posse.
The posse wasn't long gathering momentum and it was decided to have a clowns theme for at least one of the days.
It was hilarious. The sight of colourful clowns walking around the boat all day was a scream!
The clowns even donned diving equipment and dived in full clowns outfit
Although it was a great laugh, the briefing had to be taken serious. The guide, who was also dressed up as a clown, found it difficult to keep a straight face. He managed to get the points over and then the hilarity started in earnest.
