At the initiative of Georges Rollet, one of the pioneers of diving in the region, the members of the association "les Vieilles Palmes" went back in time to tell their chronicle: that of the birth of scuba diving in the Lake Annecy.
Between 1957, year of creation of the first club and 1971, date of the sinking of "France", this first generation of divers made history, not only by making people discover this sport but also by drawing the attention of the authorities to the pollution. Lake.
These pages tell the story of the club and its archeology and caving activities. This "diary" brings us to the present day when diving has developed considerably and where, thanks to the work of SILA, the waters of the lake have regained their quality.
When the Pioneers remember ... Let yourself be immersed under the limpid waves of the lake.
