BIUPC 2022 date announced

Published

on

BIUPC engages the British and Irish underwater photography communities in a one day photography shoot out. It is accessible to people who live and dive at different locations around Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland and England, including the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands, the Isles of Scilly and the other 5000 or so other islands around our shores that are bounded by the Atlantic Ocean, the English Channel and the North Sea. A late August/ early September on-the-day multi-location competition format reduces the travel and cost burden for competitors, whilst encouraging participation commensurate with a championship.

Photographers compete for a trophy in memory of one of BSoUP’s co-founders, the late Peter Scoones, and the title British & Irish Underwater Photography Champion.

BIUPC 2022 will be on 3rd September

Images can be taken and submitted electronically from anywhere within the championship geographic boundary from 10pm on the Friday to 10pm Saturday. The competition is open to all underwater photographers of all nations, but images must be from any body of salt or fresh water in the seas, rivers, streams and lakes of Britain and Ireland.

BSoUP convenes a panel of judges during the week following the competition. The results are announced about 2-3 weeks after the competition in a live broadcast from the monthly BSoUP meeting after the competition.

New year, new dive centre: Duttons to open on Anglesey in January 2023

Published

on

Duttons Divers, who have recently announced a new hard boat to join their growing fleet over on the Llyn Peninsula based at Hafan Marina Dive Centre and a second dive centre that opened in January this year, have another big announcement to end the year on!

It seems that there’s just no stopping the Duttons Divers team as they announce their third dive centre opening – this time on Anglesey!

The dive centre will be open from January 2023, and is based just off the A55 at Llangefni Services, offering ease of access from all over the island and to those visiting for the day who will be passing by on their way to dive.

The centre will offer a fully stocked shop with all major brands, as well as a classroom and meeting place for teaching and briefings for the day’s guided dives around the island, equipment servicing and air fills – perfectly located to get your fills on your way too or from sites all over the island.

Owner Clare Dutton says: “We are extremely excited to announce the new centre. We have looked at Anglesey for a while, but the perfect place just did not come up until now. We wanted somewhere central that has easy access for divers to visit.”

New North Wales dive boat for 2023 season

Published

on

Duttons Divers, the North Wales based Scuba diving company, have been going from strength to strength with the expansion of a new dive centre last year, and now the addition of a second dive boat.

Duttons already offer guided shore and boat dives around the North Wales area, with their current dive boat, Little Viv, taking divers around the Llyn Peninsula. The area offers an array of marine life and variety of dive sites, including wrecks, caverns, scenic wall dives and of course their colony of curious seals at the Tudwals Islands.

The new hard boat has a diver capacity of 10, which can be booked as a single diver or as a group charter booking. The boat has toilet facilities, a kitchen for refreshments between dives and dedicated storage areas for kit.

Clare Dutton says: “We are extremely excited for the addition of the new boat. Little Viv is a great asset to our activities, but now being able to offer dive space only trips too for divers to explore the stunning area around here will make it even better.

The dive sites within this location offer something for all level of diver interest, from shallow interactions with the seals to deeper wrecks with tonnes of history. We are all very excited for the 2023 season!”

Duttons are now taking bookings for the 2023 season. Follow the link for more information: www.duttonsdivers.com/dive-boat
