A little story

The LICDC, or International Cave Diving Congress, is a nonprofit organization.

It was created in 2005 by Joël Enndewel and Jean-Luc Armengaud. Which was supposed to be a buddy cave divers meeting soon became the international gathering to the growing success.

After several editions in Bourg Saint Andéol and in Saint-Nazaire en Royans, in 2015 the Congress settles in Gramat in the Lot. The European capital of cave diving will renew this success in 2017.
