I inverted my snorkel, I found that helped...
What to do? I only have three bullets and there are four of motley crew...
FIrst time I tried it I riped my own mask off snagging on my mask mounted torch Clare was very amused
In 2009 on a cave course I was donated a long hose and then as my buddy pulled the rest of the long hose free he managed to rip the reg out of my mouth and out of the mouthpiece as I tried desperatly to hang on to it.
It would be easy to dismiss this as two numptie divers screwing up but in truth neither of us were numpties and dispite haveing practiced it every day for the week prior to the event, we screwed up.
Long hose primory donate is not idiot proof
