Two confined water presentations were given.  1 regulator recoveries and 2 mask floods. 
Following this, scuba unit was ditched and skin diving began.  After skin diving several hundred yards, the IC did an additional 100 yard tired diver tow.

A good night.  Learning points:  every skill should be demonstration  quality,  following the format and reading notes is good in the confined water brief, slow is good,
practice, practice, practice
