Totnes club offers scuba diving taster session in town's pool
TOTNES Sub Aqua Club is offering a ‘try dive’ in the town’s swimming pool for anyone who wants to have a go at scuba diving.
The club, which attracts members from across the Westcountry but is hoping to recruit some new members, is charging £10 for the taster session, which will be refunded if the participant decides to enrol on the club’s BSAC ocean diver training course.
This course is the first step in diver training and, for young people aged 14 to 25, is linked to the Devon Active Communities project.
The ‘try dive’ session is on Wednesday, January 28, at 7.30pm at Totnes Pavilions Pool.
The event is open to all ages and during the underwater swim participants will be accompanied by a fully qualified instructor.
The club is also encouraging people who already dive to attend and see what the club has to offer.
The club meets on Wednesday evenings upstairs at the Meadowbrook Community Centre, Dartington, from 9pm to arrange diving plans for the next week.
The club’s pool sessions are on Wednesday evenings from 8pm to 9pm at Totnes Leisure Pavilions.
Its 70-plus members enjoy the benefits of two boats, a compressor and a very active diving, training and social programme from its Dartington base.
The club dives throughout the year on wrecks and reefs around the South Devon coast and takes an active part in marine conservation activities with frequent expeditions to Cornwall.
Annual trips further afield include the Isles of Scilly, Northern Scotland, the Red Sea and the Maldives.
Members also help Totnes Rotary Club with in-water safety cover at the annual raft race.
