H C Piggott – Saturday 28th November 2015

Divers:  Ben, Youri, Andrew G, Peter, Nick, Spike, Tim, Andrew & Roger

Surface support: Mark

A one metre swell that is already dropping, clear skies & deep blue water – dive conditions are perfect at the moment, 20 metre viz and no current top it off. The Piggott was a Hopper Barge and was named after Henry C Piggott, one of the Port Phillip Habour Commissioners and not after Lester Piggott (the Jockey) as we were told in our dive briefing :).  At 45 metres deep, the bottom time needs to be kept short and the all important decompression stops need to be completed with precision to avoid decompression sickness. However, we all agree, at the end of the day its all worth the effort when the diving is this good!!
