The British Sub-Aqua Club has announced the launch of a new license agreement with BSAC Egypt.
The new licensing agreement is between BSAC and Blue Pearl Ltd, which will now be trading as BSAC Egypt. The Hurghada-based company is looking to spread the reach of BSAC to the whole of the Red Sea with the creation of many new training centers.
Commenting on the new agreement, BSAC Chair Maria Harwood stated:
“The Red Sea is one of the world’s most popular diving destinations. We’re thrilled to be working towards introducing more holidaymakers from around the world to diving the BSAC way. To work with Yasser and the team at BSAC Egypt is an exciting opportunity for all involved.”
While BSAC’s Business Development Officer Adrian Collier added:
“One of the most popular diving destinations, Egypt offers a wealth of diving for all abilities and any BSAC member will be welcomed to dive or train with any of BSAC Egypt’s centers. We will also be working closely with BSAC Egypt to get more people into diving, potentially leading to new club members back in the UK.”
Yasser Ragab, the new CEO of BSAC Egypt, commented about the new venture stating:
“The Red Sea is one of the wonders of the world and a bucket lister for all new and experienced divers. By working closely with BSAC, we want to grow the love of diving and this will enable us to issue diving qualifications in our own country.”
