Dive training agency RAID recently ran a hugely successful RAIDaptive programme specifically aimed at people with spinal-cord injuries in North Sydney, Australia.

The eight-day RAIDaptive course, for people with paraplegia or quadriplegia, was hosted by Sargood on Collaroy, which offers specialist accommodation for people with spinal-cord injuries.

The participants – Ashlee Morton, Duane Gilmore, Caleb Mondom and Samir Eshani – covered the course theory first, before moving into a pool for three days, where they learned how to assemble their equipment and make their first foray into the water. After that, they moved to Shelly Beach’s famed Cabbage Tree Bay for three days exploring in open water and putting all their newly honed skills into practice with instructors Steve Bates (RAID Examiner) and Shannon Carlson and Matthew Simos.

This was the second such course conducted at Sargood, after a massively popular inaugural RAIDaptive session last October.
