Following on from the success of the Secret Seas programme on BBC, the club held a Try Dive night at Kendal Leisure Centre with special guests Paul Rose presenter of the programme and Mary Tetley Chief Executive of British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC).
Paul gave a short talk on what sparked off his interest in diving and presented Tiree Withers, one of the Club’s recent members with their first dive qualification, Ocean Diver.
This event, open to members of the public, gave individuals the chance to try diving in the leisure Centre pool, instructed by some of the club’s team of Instructors, assisted by Alison Dando from BSAC and Paul Rose. Two of the 15 try-divers present, Ian Casement & James Cook, won the opportunity of having their try dives led by Paul.
The club will be running Try Dives again in September with Ocean Diver Training courses starting in October. For further information email firstname.lastname@example.org
