A FREE presentation in the View Cafe Bar at the

National Diving & Activity Centre, Chepstow

Starts at 7pm – all welcome

GUE Instructor Gareth Burrows

A multi media journey around the world discussing diving incidents and how they were survived.

In a free presentation, Instructor Gareth Burrows explains how divers get themselves into trouble and, more importantly, how they get themselves out of it.

Trapped inside a Wreck

A horrifying tale of what happens when overconfidence
leads to disaster, Gareth explains
how a diver found themselves trapped inside a
wreck at 45 metres, alone and without a torch,
and involves the audience in answering the

question “how could this have been avoided”.

Diver Trapped in a Wreck

Entangled in the shallows

Imagine how terrifying it must be to be totally
entangled in fishing line, unable to get free,
able to see the surface only a few feet away.
Learn what tools to take with you, and what to
leave at home. Learn how to get yourself free if
you become entangled, and how to avoid
getting into trouble in the first place.

Sucking the Reg dry.

It’s everyone’s nightmare, but it’s still the
biggest cause of diving fatalities. Learn the
truth behind how it feels to run out of gas,
what to do if it happens, and how to avoid it
happening in the first place. Learn how to keep
cool and save your life, or someone else’s.
