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.

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.
