I personally want to thank the whole editorial team for their contributions this year – from the editors, associated editors, forum moderators, on-site reporters at events & competitions, staff writers, contributors and photographers who have worked with me over the year to make this one of the top online destinations for divers and underwater enthusiasts.

Finally, I want to thank you – our readers, followers, members, and subscribers – for making this an amazing place to be in our little corner of the internet.  Wishing you a very happy new year and see you in 2017!
