Connor Roe gave an excellent talk on a cave diving expedition to Cueva de la Peña Colorada, Oaxaca, Mexico this evening at the Nova Scotia pub.
Our new in 2016 club RIB has had a safety upgrade in preparation for 2017. SCUBA diving can now be supervised safely with the knowledge that Badger has navigation lights and a radar reflector!!
We also took the boat from Bristol down to Portland harbour for some SCUBA diving and training in the sea. Well done to all that came as we had some challenging winter conditions but topped it off with a great meal where the Burgers went down a treat.
Heres to many more great SCUBA diving trips on dive boat Badger in 2017!!
On the 25th of January, Peter Shore spoke to us about his experiences working as a Navy clearance diver in the 1950s. The event was well attended by members from both CSAC and other Bristol dive clubs.
Upstairs at the Orchard Inn at 8pm on Wed 25th January, Peter Shore will be coming along to give us a talk about his experiences, training and working as a Navy (mine) clearance diver in the 1950s.
The talk will cover:- the diving equipment of that era, Navy training, serving in the Suez crisis and the Korean war and many anecdotes!
So if you want to find about about 2 man piloted mini submarines, pioneering re-breathers (and everything else) then don't miss this.
It should be an interesting evening so please come along.
See flyer attached. £5 at the door. Directions to the Orchard Inn are ava...

This variation in dive sites highlights the breadth of diving CSAC undertakes on expeditions around the globe.
The Lifeboat Fund is an official charity of the Civil Service that exists for one purpose: to help the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) - the charity that saves lives at sea. ...
