TekCamp 2018: Day 3 Review


Day 3 of TekCamp saw a fair few last minute package upgrades, attendees enjoying their experience and learning that much that they upgraded to a 3 or 4 day package, a testament to the quality of learning being enjoyed for sure.

DAN Europe set up shop collecting pre and post dive urine samples and performing post dive doppler tests as part of an ongoing hydration study, most of the attendees willingly participated in their tests.

The in-water sessions built on existing skills and stretched the learning further, from blindfolded navigation sessions to support diver session as well as deco trapeze work.

Of course there was plenty of space for rebreather and sidemount try dives for those that wanted to try out a different modality.

The day was topped by a spectacular photogrammetry and 3D presentation by John Kendall who is arguably becoming one of the leaders in the field this side of the world.
