Bay of Wails

How cold is -2C (28F) water? Ask Steve Clabuesch. He was tending the first dive at the Bay of Sails. While preparing to deploy the down line, he got a little too close to the edge of the hole, and "whoooops!" In the drink he went. "Yeeeouch!"
I was back at camp taking a nap, when a tap on my shoulder announced that a helo was returning one of the field members because they fell in the dive hole. That message sent a chill down my spine, too! Fortunately, Steve was fine and I took his place tending the dives.
