End of Season Kit Care and Storage

About this time of year many of us decide that it’s time for a break from diving until the warmer weather returns. It is this point that it is imperative to clean and store equipment properly in order for it to be ready for next season.  Even though I continue to dive all year these…

Why go to the Shetlands for Diving?

To get to the Shetlands for a TSAC member is long and drawn out. You can fly from Manchester, but the usual route is via ferry. A seven hour drive to Aberdeen followed by an overnight ferry to Lerwick, basically a twenty four hour journey. Cost of return ferry (including a shared cabin) is £220.…

Have A Go Night (HAG Night)

On the ‘New to Scuba Diving’ page of the BSAC website it states; ‘You probably have a lot of questions… Is scuba diving for me? How long does it take? Is it safe? Will I like it? How much does it cost? And probably many more. Learning to scuba dive will likely change your life.…

TSAC Annual BBQ (the first one)

Covid has hit everyone, including divers. It does seem odd that an activity where you are essentially a sealed unit was hit, but hit it was. This meant that training, dive trips and the social aspects of the club have all been affected. To bring the club back together the committee decided to get things…

Gaelic Rose – Muck and Walls

We set off from Manchester and after a long journey we arrived at Lochaline by 1900. Kit unloaded we got ready for the evening meal on board the Gaelic Rose. The Gaelic Rose is an old wooden fishing boat that has been converted into a liveaboard and it will be our home for the next…

Rathlin Island Diving

A liveaboard in Egypt was on the cards but, as with everything, it was red listed so postponed to next year. This left a few spare days in the calendar so what to do? Fairly obvious, find somewhere else to dive. It had to be the UK, it had to be available and (to be…

BSAC message on Clarifying “The rule of 6”

We thought we’d start this week with a big warm thank you. Thank you for your loyalty to BSAC, for sticking with us through the tough times and for your support and kindness to clubs and fellow members.

Resuming in-water rescue breath training

The teaching of in-water Rescue Breaths (RB) is integral to diver training at Sports Diver and above. BSAC advice has been that this is not currently achievable safely whilst following the Covid-19 guidance. However, as the restrictions are slowly being eased, it is understandable that students will once again wish to progress their training. In order…

BSAC have now made their 2021 Dive Planner available for download on their website and it’s available in lots of different sizes and…
