Get your hands on a Blancpain EUROTEK bag

Published

on

EUROTEK

EUROTEKEUROTEK organisers have some exciting news for this year’s delegates. The first 400 divers to book a weekend pass for this international advanced and technical diving conference will receive a gorgeous limited edition Blancpain / Fourth Element dry duffle dive bag worth £65.

“We understand that divers need the right equipment to transport their gear,” stated Rosemary E Lunn, EUROTEK co-organiser. “We have therefore teamed up with Fourth Element and the respected Swiss watchmaker, Blancpain to create something rather special. A rugged bag, ideal for an adventurous diving weekend away.

This is the first time Blancpain has sponsored EUROTEK.

It had an interesting feature that we take for granted today. Blancpain were the first company to incorporate a rotating bezel on their Fifty Fathoms watch. So it has been really exciting working very closely with a company that helped create a small but significant piece of dive history. Did you know that Blancpain designed and built the first ‘real’ divers watch back in 1953? The ‘Fifty Fathoms’ watch was liked by the elite frogmen of the time (including Jacques Cousteau) because it was a robust, easy to read, accurate timekeeper.

There has been a brisk trade in weekend tickets (£80 each) and we have divers flying in from 10 different countries. Therefore at the time of writing this we have 200 bags left. If you want to guarantee getting your hands on one, I’d recommend that you book your weekend pass soon via www.eurotektickets.com. You don’t want to miss out on the diving event of the year!”

The January 2022 NUPG meeting saw Nur Tucker take to the virtual stage. Nur has seen huge success with her underwater photography in recent years, winning several high profile competitions. In this talk she was hugely generous to share just how she got the shots. Nur shared what drives her, her dedication to practicing techniques wherever she can, and some of the innovative ideas she has come up with to create images that stand out from the crowd. You can see more of her work here.

The monthly NUPG competition theme in January was “The End of the Dive” and the winner was John Spencer with this split-shot of a diver getting back onto the boat after a dive in the Menaii Strait.

The next meeting is on Monday the 21st February and sees Scubaverse photo-journalist, Sean Chinn, talk about the images he has taken during the pandemic.
