Around thirty members and their families turned up on Twickenham Embankment yesterday to celebrate the naming of our new RIB. Her name is Richmond Explorer. RSAC founder member Janet W did the honours. Scuba divers prefer to dive on a neap tide, but this ceremony happened to take place on a spring tide and rather precisely at the Twickenham high water @15.41. The photos below tell the story...

Hello to sweet humming of the new 4-stroke motor and goodbye to the old 2-stroke fuming machine.

Now, let's get some RIB diving going!
