先日5月10日、40年に渡ってBSACの総裁を務められた英国王室のチャールズ皇太子(HRH The Prince of Wales KG KT)が退任され、息子であるウィリアム王子(HRH The Duke of Cambridge Prince William)が新たなBSACの総裁に就任致しました。

■History of BSAC



I am delighted to accept the role as President of the British Sub-Aqua
Club, continuing the President from my father, The Prince of Wales, and my
grandfather, The Duke of Edinburgh.  It is a great honour to become the third
generation of my family to hold this position in Britain’s biggest diving club.
Just like my grandfather and my father, I am proud to say that I learnt to
dive with BSAC, and share your passion for the sport and the underwater world.
I hope that one day my son, George, will also experience the wonders that
snorkelling and scuba diving have to offer.
The underwater world truly captures the imagination and broadens
horizons. I have been fortunate enough to have dived in some stunning
locations around the world. Scuba diving really has opened my eyes not only to
many extraordinary sights, but also to the responsibilities that we have as
guardians of the underwater world. Which is why, as BSAC’s new President, I
hope to continue my father’s legacy of striving to preserve and protect our
precious marine heritage and environment for future generations.  
I look forward to working with BSAC to encourage even more young
people into the sport, for they are the next generation of underwater explores,
pioneers and protectors.  The skills and experiences gained through snorkelling
and scuba diving can have a positive and lasting impact on their lives, giving
them confidence and building their aspirations.
 I wish you all safe and happy diving.
