Help Shape The Future Of BSAC!

BSAC, British Sub Aqua Club, Rosemary E Lunn, Roz Lunn, The Underwater Marketing Company, scuba diving surveyThe British Sub Aqua Club would like feedback from the diving community to understand how it can use digital tools and services (website, data management, emails, social media etc) to better effect.

To that end they have commissioned an independent research study. They would like to hear from existing members and lapsed members. The survey is also for divers or snorkellers that have never been a member of BSAC. This is your opportunity to feed into the process and have your views taken on board.

As a small thank you for completing the survey, all participants will be entered in a prize draw to win one of five AP Diving Self-sealing Surface Marker Buoys worth £30 each.

The survey will be open until midnight on Thursday 12th February.

You can take the survey now via this link.

‘Technically Inspired” debuted at the Boot Dusseldorf Dive Show, hence the German Subtitles

Apeks has today revealed a sneak preview of ‘Technically Inspired‘. Having viewed this ‘short’ film we think it to be an amazing love story / tribute to temperate water diving.

‘Technically Inspired’ was shot in the depths of winter off Scotland and guest stars Adam Wood. If you are a true ardent cold water diver, this film will push your buttons and clearly demonstrates why we love scuba. It beautifully showcases why diving in the UK (when it is good) is some of the very best in the world.

Avid scuba diving fans will certainly have fun spotting key iconic diving locations and a pub that has welcomed many a diver over the years.

We look forward to seeing ‘Technically Inspired’ released in full soon.

It was at this time she learned how to use a Drager closed circuit rebreather.

Against strong opposition, she worked as an underwater photo model before moving behind the camera to become the first female professional underwater photographer. Her work opened up a formerly male-dominated field to women. The spectacular film scenes showing her diving with sharks certainly contributed to the big success of her husband Hans Hass’ movies in the 1950s.

After leaving the public limelight she focused on being an advisor to her husband Hans. They were happily married for more than 62 years, until his death in June 2013.

If you are curious to know more, her autobiography is entitled “A Girl On The Ocean Floor”. In 2011 it was adapted into a film staring Yvonne Catterfeld as Lotte.

The Hans Hass Institute has asked that donations in Lotte’s memory be made to support SHARKPROJECT, an organization dedicated to stopping the destruction of the oceans and the extinction of sharks. Please click here to donate. In addition an online condolence book has been set up here.
