Journal Entry:
Jack took Stacy and I to Lagoona to practice the skills we have to be able to demonstrate. Not an exciting dive, and I'm going to have to do it again tomorrow. I wasn't hungry, so at lunch I went to the internet cafe and worked on the emergency plan we have to finish as part of our dive master's class.

In the afternoon I went to the Lighthouse with Jamal (another divemaster). We were doing a checkout dive, a mini class for certified divers who haven't dove in an extended amount of time. We had an English couple and Jamal had me run the entire class and dive. It was a bit daunting and I made a few mistakes (mostly things I left out of the pre-dive briefing) but mostly it went smoothly.

Back at Nesima Stacy and I sat around and worked on our Emergency Plan. We had an early dinner at the Sharks Club then went to our respective internet cafes (we prefer different places) and each worked on a part of the Plan.
