Your Regional Coach
About Stephen Dorricott, North West Region Coach
I joined Southport BSAC in 2004 and have completed all my diving with the one club, I have gained so many friends over the years through diving and have been lucky enough to dive all around the world. I am presently Chairman of Southport BSAC and enjoy all aspects of the sport whether teaching snorkelling in the pool or exploring new dive sites on club trips on my rebreather. It’s all diving, so what’s not to enjoy!
I have been an active instructor in my club for the last 14 years before becoming involved in regional teaching events, my personal development goes hand in hand with my instructing. I’m constantly learning on every event in which I participate, that’s what’s great about BSAC, there is so much to gain by taking part.
