In October 2009, ANDI International joined Team Nautilus for a training work shop in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The group included representatives from ANDI HQ in New York, ANDI Europe, and ANDI Latin America.
During the course of the trip we were able to exchange ideas with some of the top diving professionals in the world. The group reviewed the new ANDI/Nautilus CCR training prgram that is slated for release in November, worked on expanding the Nautilus Instructor base, and began to discuss plans for 2010.
Mid way through the work shop we were faced with preparing for Hurricane Rick to hit the Baja Penninsula. Although it turned east before making landfall, it still impacted the waters of Los Cabos. Despite the inclimate weather, the group pushed ahead, adapting to the situation.
Although the diving conditions were not excellent, we still enjoyed sharing our little corner of the planet and are looking forward to our next time together.
We would like to thank all the guys from ANDI International for a great trip!
