    Regulator BEUCHAT V-Twin

    Appeared in DIVER July 2016
    SELF-CONTAINED UNDERWATER BREATHING APPARATUS originated in France - the first commercially successful scuba sets were claimed to be the twin-hose open-circuit units developed by Emile Gagnan and Jacques-Yves Cousteau in 1943.
    I'm not sure if this claim is fact or fiction, but what I do know is that my own desire to take up diving was born after watching the legend in the red beanie and his team of explorers share the underwater realm on our family television set.
    France has a rich history in regard to scuba diving equipment, as has long-established French manufacturer Beuchat, which has played a major role in gear development from day one, and still flies the flag.
    Latest product from the French Riviera-based company is another twin set-up, although this one has a modern twist. I took it with me to the temperate waters of the Pacific to give it a go.

    Mastering colour is ALEX MUSTARD's subject this month - there’s no need to become obsessive about it, he says, because your subconscious may well do the job for you. But never forget the value of a dash of red
