EUROTEK organisers have some exciting news for this year's delegates.

The first 400 divers to book a weekend pass for this international advanced and technical diving conference will receive a gorgeous limited edition Blancpain / Fourth Element dry duffle dive bag worth £65!

“We understand that divers need the right equipment to transport their gear”, stated Rosemary E Lunn, EUROTEK co-organiser. “We have therefore teamed up with Fourth Element and the respected Swiss watchmaker, Blancpain to create something rather special. A rugged bag, ideal for an adventurous diving weekend away.

This is the first time Blancpain has sponsored EUROTEK.

Did you know that Blancpain designed and built the first 'real' divers watch back in 1953? The 'Fifty Fathoms' watch was liked by the elite frogmen of the time (including Jacques Cousteau) because it was a robust, easy to read, accurate timekeeper.

It had an interesting feature that we take for granted today. Blancpain were the first company to incorporate a rotating bezel on their Fifty Fathoms watch. So it has been really exciting working very closely with a company that helped create a small but significant piece of dive history.

There has been a brisk trade in weekend tickets (£80 each) and we have divers flying in from 10 different countries. Therefore at the time of writing this we have 200 bags left. If you want to guarantee getting your hands on one, I'd recommend that you book your weekend pass soon via www.eurotektickets.com You don't want to miss out on the diving event of the year!”

Forgotten WWI Wrecks TalK

Jutland 100 has just been celebrated and now the Great British public and diving fraternity are more familiar with this famous sea battle. However many WWI wrecks are largely forgotten about.

The Maritime Archaeology Trust has been fortunate enough to be funded by a Heritage Lottery grant. As a result a four year project has been put in place to coincide with the centenary of the Great War. At the heart of the project is a desire to raise the profile of a currently under-represented aspect of the First World War. This conflict left a rich legacy - did you know that England's south coast has over 1,000 wartime wrecks?

The Maritime Archaeology Trust has therefore scheduled two talks this month.

Wednesday 22nd June at 19.30
- Falmouth Watersports Association, The Boat Park, Grove Place, Falmouth, TR11

Wednesday 29th June at 19.30
Totnes Civic Hall, Market Square, High Street, Totnes, TQ9

You are most welcome to attend either.
