    Rebreather trip in Cavalaire, south of France

    Hi,

    Here are a few photos i took last week in Cavalaire in the south of France (Mediterranean sea). Thanks to Arnaud Niel, well known TDI & Tek instructor and his diving club Eau Bleue (Eau Bleue Plongee Trimix Cavalaire) where i spent a few days.

    Water was still clear and cool (19C in surface, 14C 70m deep)

    This place is famous for wrecks such as Togo (55m), Rubis (submarine 40m), Hellcat (57m), ...

    1.Rubis


    2. Togo


    3. Hellcat


    4. Ramon Membru


    Hope this will give you the envy to see Francoise & Arnaud in Cavalaire, so familiar and a must do in the French Mediterranean coast.

    Thanks,

    BR,

    Hi
    Indeed, nice pictures,
    nice wrecks,
    really nice dive owners
    but only CE machines on board ... bloody French regulations

    What? What about regulations? Are you saying that you need CE-blurbed equipment to dive in France (EC in general, I suppose)?

    Is this a "French cultural exception" or Europe (EC) wide? I declined the CE stamp on my rEvo, not knowing why I should care... Now I know!
    But in any case is there any difference between models? And what if you modify your unit? Are the dive center taking apart your unit and having it go through WOB tests?

    Frankly, these questions are the main questions you will find on French forums and technically nothing should be changed but nobody is sure :)
    So just put a sticker on it and go for it :)
    Anyway, as it is France, is always back to he good wish of the dive operator and with my non-ce machine, I have been accepted on some dive boats :)
