July 2015

Congratulations to Steve Mulroy on completing and passing his Sports Diver qualification. He completed the course in style with a final arduous push at NDAC Chepstow on July 25th under the instruction of Dean Hall. Steve completed all his open water lifts, tows and dive lead plus a final dive of the day to get his 25m depth progression and to have a bit of fun following a 5am start.


Well done Steve! 🙂

ADSAC Member Catches Giant Crab

Jan 29, 2012   //   by DucksAdmin   //   News  //  No Comments

Earlier this month, a British man captured a giant crab in Lyme Bay near Lyme Regis, Dorset. The crab had a shell width of 30cm (12 inches) and it weighed 7.7 kg (17lbs). It measures over 60cm across and is thought to be the largest edible crab ever captured in British waters. Take a look at the picture above.

Paul Worsley, 39, of Aylesbury Ducks Sub Aqua Club who managed to haul the creature from the sea bed during a diving trip in Lyme Bay, said: “I couldn’t believe it when I saw it. I’ve seen and caught crabs before but never one as big as this.”
