A quick trip practising diving techniques. We got the kit together, and after a sober night we left early in the morning and headed down to Sump 2. After getting all the kit on and to our amazement it all working properly we went to the sump pool. Mike was having confident problems as it was his first ever dive but netherless we both went through two. Sensibly Mike said we shouldn't carry on because of various reasons but mainly because the cave was in flood and Mike's main light had just run out. I had a quick look at Sump 3 which was amazingly spacious. Before heading out we practised some diving techniques in the airbell between two and three. On the way out we decided to try diving through Sump1 - not a good idea, with diving kit Sump 1 is very tight.
