The British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC) is calling for divers to get involved with a special project to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the scuttling of the interned German High Seas fleet at Scapa Flow at the end of the First World War.

BSAC has launched the project ahead of the official anniversary on 21 June 2019, and hopes to bring divers together next year to ‘support the Scapa 100 initiative, which is coordinating a cluster of projects and expeditions to mark the centenary.’

The venture aims to inspire BSAC divers to dive the wrecks at Scapa Flow in 2019 from both local hard boats and club RIBS. The hope is that divers will also collect and feed in data for the Scapa 100 project, which is gathering material for an online virtual library, and also help to take pictures of BSAC’s sponsored Scapa wreck, the Coln.

Divers and their clubs can get involved by:

  • Joining a dive team on a boat chartered by BSAC
  • Bringing your club RIB to Scapa and being part of a multi-club expedition
  • Charter a local hardboat for your club or group of divers to join Scapa 100
