Leaving Chatham Marina on board Spirit, one of Elite Sailing‘s Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 35, we headed towards Garrison Point, off Sheerness. For Becky and Elaine, it was a discovery weekend while for experienced sailor Keith, it was more like a refresher trip. For me, it was the start of the dayskipper practical course.
Having served 4 years of a 3-year mandate, it was about time I stood down as BSoUP Chairman. I am staying on as a committee member but it’s now time to have some fresh leadership. And after 3 years under ruthless American dictatorship (sorry Martha 🙂 ) and 4 years under French rule, it was time to hand the British Society of Underwater Photographers back to Britain !
Another cover, but this one is real, unlike the Narked Diver one I created as a joke last year !
I was elected Chairman the British Society of Underwater Photographers at the November AGM, replacing Martha Tressler who was standing down after three years. BSoUP is a fantastic source of inspiration and a great way to meet fellow underwater photographers, some of whom recognised internationally.
