The British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC) was formed in 1953 to promote under water sport, exploration and safety to the highest standards, and is recognized as the Governing body for the sport of under water swimming in the UK.
In 1953 the BSAC had around 100 members. But membership has grown considerably since then, and today the BSAC is believed to be one of the largest scuba diving clubs in the world, with around 45,000 members world wide.
BSAC Branches can be found throughout the World, but the majority are naturally located in the UK. Branches, like Cardiff BSAC, are autonomous groups of BSAC members who organise and promote diving activities in their area.
Branches often hold weekly meetings, and pool training sessions, and arrange diving courses and trips to help branch members develop their diving skills.
Training at BSAC branches is organized and supervised by qualified instructors working to a BSAC training programme designed to build confidence and self-reliance, whilst keeping safety uppermost.
BSAC members receive a monthly copy of Scuba Magazine, and also benefit from generous BSAC Third Party Insurance cover when diving.
If you live in the Cardiff or Glamorgan areas of South Wales, and would like to join Cardiff BSAC, the Cardiff branch of the British Sub-aqua Club, please contact our Training Officer Doug McKirdy, or come along to our next Club meeting and ask for a BSAC membership application form.
