Diving Centers Werner Lau – Sharm el Sheikh

Regarding the latest event in Sharm el Sheikh on 23rd of July we would like to inform about the situation now. Everything came back to normal again. The hotel-occupancy at the moment is only on 50 %. The main problem is the flight schedule of the airlines. Many flights have been deleted but we all hope, that this will change back to normal as well.

Sharm el Sheikh itself should be very safe as the police detachment is quiet big. The security-service at the hotels has been upgraded as well as the security around the diving centre and the Jetty, where the boats are leaving. On the Jetty at the Naama Bay we do have three officers, checking everybody who wants to enter the boats. Nobody can enter the jetty without passing the metal detector.

he Divers at Diving Centers Werner Lau feeling safe and undisturbed while having holiday. There is no restriction because of the high safety standards.

The dive-spots are fantastic and not crowded at the moment. The water temperature is up 29° - excellent diving conditions.

20th Anniversary Of International Cleanup Day

Divers Celebrate Commitment To Underwater Cleanups

Divers and water enthusiasts around the world will be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of International Cleanup Day on Saturday, 17 September. This cleanup event, with volunteers helping clean shoreline and underwater environments all over the world, is one of the largest litter survey and single-day event of its kind.

Recognising that divers are a vital part of the effort to remove aquatic debris and contribute to solve marine litter issues, Project AWARE Foundation co-ordinates the underwater portion of International Cleanup Day in co-operation with the Ocean Conservancy. Project AWARE Foundation is calling all divers and water enthusiasts to take action and participate in river, lake, beach and underwater cleanups in their local area.

Why clean up?

Litter is a growing problem in the oceans and on beaches around the world, largely resulting from our increasing use of non-biodegradable packaging and irresponsible waste disposal. Litter is not just a surface problem. Rubbish from oil drums and drink cans to plastic bottles and discarded fishing gear also accumulates on the seabed. The disposal of litter at sea, in rivers or on beaches has wide ranging impacts. “As a diver, you see first hand the devastating effects litter can have underwater. Marine litter contaminates habitat and harms aquatic life,” states Dr. Drew Richardson, Chairman, Project AWARE Foundation. “Divers have the training and skills necessary to remove much of the debris found below the surface. The data they collect during International Cleanup Day, helps complete the overall picture of debris sources in an effort to resolve these issues.”

Every year thousands of volunteers, divers and non divers, answer the call and take action. During 2004’s cleanup events, more than 300,000 people in 88 countries volunteered to remove nearly eight million pounds of debris. The top items collected both on land and underwater included cigarettes, beverage bottles, food wrappers and containers. The final tally for 2004 also included nearly 200 entangled animals – nearly half of which were tangled in discarded fishing line. In the UK over 3,000 volunteers collected over a quarter of a million pieces of beach litter.

More than just a cleanup

Debris is a consequence of everyone’s actions – sixty percent of which results from shoreline and recreational activities. Cleanup volunteers realise that it’s not just an event to pick up trash. Debris is a preventable problem. Cleanup events raise environmental awareness and the data collected by each participant is used to educate public audiences and policy makers to influence change. By taking part you contribute vital information that the Ocean Conservancy and other environmental organisations can use to campaign against the sources of beach litter.

How to take part?

You can join the 20th Anniversary celebration by organising your own beach and / or underwater clean up or by volunteering at someone else’s. Everyone wishing to organise an event must register and complete the sign up form below so that we can provide you with the litter survey forms and other educational materials to distribute to the participants. If you want to take part as a volunteer or want to join forces with another cleanup co-ordinator, please search the database of cleanup locations below to find an International Cleanup Day event near you.

Beach Preserves

What child can walk along a beach and resist the urge to pick up shiny rocks and glistening sea glass? Once home, though, the treasures usually dry and lose their luster. With this canning project, your beachcomber can keep her finds sparkling and create a lasting summer memento.

Gather rocks, empty shells and sea glass in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors. Fill a canning jar with a layer of sand and wedge in larger rocks or driftwood, then add the smaller shells. Fill the jar with seawater, screw the lid on tightly, and wrap in a towel to prevent breakage on the ride home.

Stand the jar in a kettle and cover it with water. Heat until the water boils, then simmer for 15 minutes (the cooking kills any algae). Carefully remove the jar from the kettle (parents only) and cool. Let your child label the jar and decorate the lid with sand sprinkled over glue.

Tasty sweet and sour barbecue chicken that will be a party pleaser.
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed through a garlic press
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half

In a shallow bowl, whisk together the garlic, vinegar, lime and lemon juices, brown sugar, mustard, honey, and salt and pepper. Whisk in the olive oil (a fun job for kids).

Step 2
Reserve two portions of the mixture for basting and for dipping sauce, then add the chicken to the dish and turn it to coat.

Step 3
Grill the chicken for about 4 minutes per side or until the juices run clear. During the last minutes of cooking, baste the chicken with one portion of the reserved sauce to glaze it.

Step 4
