Sandra Ackland

Position on committee: Secretary

What are you looking forward to about being on the committee? : Not much really, I just believe that if you are to take benefit from something like a club you should give back.

How did you hear about OMSAC/come to join OMSAC?: first joined in the 90’s loved it then, love it now.

How long have you been a member?  This time around – less than a year.

What is your current scuba qualification? 2*   (SAUU/CMAS) trained with OMSAC in 1992

What do you do when you’re not diving? Work, hike, have fun in the ocean.

What is your favourite Cape dive site and why?  Coral Gardens – first sighting of a hairy crab.  But maybe Smits on a good day, or Partridge…. Do I have to choose?

What’s your idea of the best-ever dive buddy?  Calm relaxed and goes with the flow but serious about safety and aware of what is going on around them.

What is your bucket list dive site?  Marico Oog

What do you wish you knew when you started diving that you learnt the hard way or that you know now?  Less is more – you really do not need all the fancy kit.
