Starters' Splash-In set for September

The Northern Underwater Photography Group is holding a Splash-In event for newcomers to u/w photography at the Capernwray inland dive-site in Lancashire on Saturday, 23 September – so non-members are invited to take part.

Entrance is open to anyone who has not previously won an underwater photography contest other than the NUPG’s own monthly competitions. It’s free to take part, although the usual £14 daily entrance fee for Capernwray still applies.

Each competitor can submit one or two images, taken on any type of digital camera.

Registration is from 9am and images have to be submitted between 3.00 and 3.30pm. Judging by public vote starts shortly afterwards, and a trophy will be awarded

Experienced NUPG members will be on hand during the day to provide advice and assistance in editing images, says the group. Whole-image alterations are allowed, but not cropping or spot removal.

Do you need to be fit to dive?

Adventurer, technical diver, stuntman, climber and all-round Action Man Andy Torbet knows a thing or two about keeping fit. Here he gives some basic advice to help us all get back into shape for when we can hit the water again.

Ship shape

The skipper promised me a wreck, so it must be down here somewhere. If the vis was better, I might even be able to see it.

Things fall apart

I can’t quite understand it. How did that happen? Every item of my scuba kit was fine when I put it away.

Free and squeezy

Freediving – it’s basically snorkelling with good PR. It involves holding your breath, often to the point of semi-suffocation. What’s so free about that?
