In May 2003 I had the opportunity to do my closed circuit course in the South of France. Course leader was Dave ThompsonRob Postma did his CCR TRIMIX INSTRUCTOR course, and we (webmaster) Janwillem Bech, Ivo v. Dam and John Wittenberg did the CCR TRIMIX COURSE. The photo's are screen captures of an excellent digital Video Rob Postma made of these dives. Unfortunately the quality of screen captures is rather poor, due to simple capture equipment.
