Description: Well, this was suppose to be a first of the year dive on the Boiler Wreck in Vero Beach. We all met there, but due to ground swells, which generated zero underwater visibility, we migrated to Ft. Pierce and Pepper Park! There were some novice and some experienced divers. Well, the entry went well! At the third reef, vis was 3 ft average - very bad. One new diver tried to keep up with the experienced ScubaGirl! That's a very difficult task! Our normal entry says, everybody swims out at their own pace and heads for the dive flag. When the flag holder goes under, they slow down! Well, this diver became exhausted and started back - etc. etc. etc! One snorkeler was wearing a borrowed lycra skin. The skin fit very loose and filled with water. This tired out the snorkeler! The main dive team did make a successful dive in very poor conditions! There was no group second dive - all went their separate ways!!
