Well we just had a quick change of crew, with one couple now unable to sort employers and leases etc. so looking to reschedule for next year maybe. That allowed a new opening for Alex and I am talking to a few others now to fill the last spot of the ten person Dive team. I have had a few applicants for the “Young Explorer” sponsorships through my Tradeaboat “adventure column”, so if I get the right quality of applicants, there may be two extras. Still on the hunt for a Tongan to join the team as BLUE BASE general Hand and have set the date of July 5th/ 6th for the team to assemble in Nuku Alofa for final preps to move out to Nomuka Iki. The Team now looks like this ( Jane is working on Pictures and profiles for the web as we speak)
