Twas one of my mates and his son diving. had to dive out the way......... son torn up on the rocks with ripped wet suit and bruised leg. Very lucky inches from serious disaster. They were well marked and right on the training bank.
Anyone who dives Studland training bank be careful, myself and my son were nearly hit by an extremely careless boat owner yesterday evening, ignoring my marker float, totally ignored the red marker posts warning of the shallow reef, we both had to jump out of the way as his boat ground across the top of the rocks. It wasn’t as if it was a cheap couple of grand boat, I’m talking £70-100k yacht. I’ve dived that mark regularly every summer for the last 10 years and have had a few close calls but that was beyond stupidity.
it was absolutely horrific, my boy had to jump out the way otherwise he would have been right under the hull, managed to get away with just a ripped wetsuit and grazes on his leg.
