Who is the BWAC?

BWAC is definitely one of the more active wreck diving clubs around. We have a very keen and experienced group of divers, with dives running almost every weekend.

Our boat has two moorings, Ettalong and Terrigal, making the wrecks of the Central Coast and Long Reef easily accessible.

Jim Dodd shared Grey Nurse Shark Watch's video to the group: Brisbane Water Aqualung Club.

Grey Nurse Shark Watch
Saturday August 27th I'm doing a Grey Nurse Shark Watch Watch survey trip to Broughton Island to count and photograph the sharks. If you're interested call Let's Go Adventures on (02) 4981 4331 to book your spot on the boat. Tell them that you want to do the shark survey with me. Please watch this video for more info. Or you can contact me.

GREY NURSE SHARK WATCH VOLUNTEER TRAINING VIDEO A year or so after the launch of GNS Watch, Peter Huettner owner of Scuba Haven Port Macquarie and member of the Port Macquariue Underwater Research Group, suggested a methods video (even a simple video recording of a powerpoint presentation) as an alternative or in addition to our methods manual for divers who are keen to participate in the GNS Watch program. In 2014 and early 2015, we managed to produce and now distribute our first Grey Nurse Shark Watch Volunteer Training Video, a feat that would not have been possible without the generous inkind contributions of our experts: Editor Mr Damian Caniglia and Cinematographer Mr Darren Jew. damiancaniglia.com.au www.facebook.com/pages/Damian-Caniglia-Photography/104189769660146 darrenjew.com www.facebook.com/darren.jew?fref=ts The Grey Nurse Shark Watch Volunteer Training Video contains just enough information about our program and its methods to inform our supporters and importantly to assist our volunteers to carry out opportunistic or site custodian surveys. With just over 3 weeks remaining in our 2015 summer survey there is no better time than now to learn more about the program and carry out a volunteer site custodian survey. Simply, watch our video to learn more about GNS Watch and how you can contribute!

Hi BWACers, tomorrow night is the second Tuesday of the month and our usual meeting night. Since nothing extraordinary has happened we have decided to skip the meeting part and just head to The Doylo at 6:30pm for dinner, a drink, and a good chat about diving. ...

Control room of UB-110, German submarine

There have been several movies about German submarines and how they looked back in the day, but here is an actual picture taken from 1918.
UB-110 was one of Germany’s infamous U-boats. It was commissioned into the Imperial Navy on March 23rd, 1918. Its tour of duty was short.
The SM UB-110 was depth charged, rammed and sunk by the HMS Garry on July 19th, 1918 while under the command of Kapitänleutnant Werner Furbringer. The SM UB-110 was one of the last U-boats to be sunk during the War, and possibly the very last one.
According to Furbringer, the Garry opened fire on the surviving, unarmed crew of his ship after it was sunk. 23 men were killed in the sinking and alleged aftermath.
