    Must admit I wasn't aware the other agencies had already done this - if so it's a non issue, provided like you say, it doesn't rely on an online connection.

    As for the magazine, if subscription...

    Online voting worked fine for me. Put in my two cents worth.

    As far as SCUBA is concerned, my understanding is that the online-only move is temporary due to Covid, and they intend to return to...

    BSAC is really just replicating the advice from the BDSG, which is a co-operative effort of all the agencies in the UK, so I'd assume a lot of the advice is the result of a compromise between bodies...

    Seems to be the way of life for businesses in modern capitalism. A few years back when I lived in London I had the displeasure of dealing with an estate agency that did precisely this - with them...

    I'm inclined to agree. I suspect we'll see extremely cheap deals for the 2020/2021 seasons, and most likely 2021/2022 as well. Given the choice between reducing emissions and saving consumer...

    I suspect you are correct with the latter. I don't trust the current westminster government to ressurrect the economy post-Covid. I suspect we are are in for an L shaped depression, with govt making...

    True. Getting content is also an issue. Easier when a club has enthusiastic photographers / videographers, but not all do. I'd say these days, having decent social feeds is prob better for a club...

    It is concerning. Having had a long break from diving, it's concerning to see now how much less infrastructure there is these days, and how many BSAC clubs have folded. Covid will almost certainly...

    Shame, that! They've done an awful lot on the net and social media to promote diving and make it accessible. But the low margin and high volume model (not neccessarily a low quality of service model,...

    Yes, running a dive boat in the UK is a hard way to make a living, and there are real costs involved. But you have to always do right by your customers. The game is way too reputation based to be...

    I'd like to see the details of what's on offer, given these days you can get Wordpress and Google Sites for free (along with many others like Freehostia), which are effectively plug-n-play with no...

    Sadly I think as hardcore neoliberal thinking has become more and more ingrained in NZ government groupthink, the commitment to envrionmental leadership has become little more than sloganeering for...

    Given the amount of abuse the GBR endures from agricultural run-off, Crown of Thorns, bleaching and cyclones, it's amazing it's stood up as well as it has. I guess it's so large that usually only one...

    British diving started off as club diving. Well in the 90s, BSAC was absolutely dominant in the UK scene - you started off with the crappy club gear, and once you got carded you brought you own kit,...

    Unlikely. Much more likely domestic pressure from tour operators in the UK. Red Sea packages are crazy profitable for package operators, and Sharm is an easier sell than Hurghada. Fantastic news,...
