The award will be presented at the beginning of each year to an individual who the members of the EUF feel has made a significant and sustained contribution towards the responsible development of the European diving community.

Mark Caney, President of the EUF, said, “Jack always spoke with passion of the importance of everyone in diving working together to grow and promote the sport. He was personally instrumental in establishing diving in Europe so this award will be a fitting way to honour his memory and to further the goals he always advocated with such passion.”

More information about how the EUF Lavanchy Award will be administered and allocated will be announced shortly on the EUF website and EUF Facebook page.
