Join The Explorers Club on Monday, June 12th to hear the first-hand account of Rick Stanton, a renowned cave diver who was key in the 2018 rescue of 12 boys and their soccer coach from the flooded Tham Luang caves in Thailand.

 


 

In June 2018, twelve boys, aged 11-16, became trapped in the Tham Luang Nang Non cave system with their soccer coach after heavy rainfall flooded the cave while they were exploring inside. Over the course of the following 18 days, a massive, international rescue effort was launched involving over 10,000 people. Among them was Rick Stanton, a British civilian cave diver whose unique skillset and cave-diving experience lead him to becoming a key figure in the rescue operations. Come to The Explorers Club on Monday, June 12th, to hear first-hand the dramatic and inspiring story that was documented in the award winning film The Rescue.

Speakers

Rick Stanton MBE GM

Rick Stanton served as a firefighter in the U.K. for 25 years; alongside this his ‘hobby’ of cave-diving remained uppermost in his focus. His reputation became sufficiently established that for the past 20 years he was 'the point of contact' to resolve various international cave diving incidents as a volunteer cave rescue diver. In 2018 he found himself on the world’s stage after he and his dive buddy discovered the 13 teenage soccer players who had become trapped inside Thailand’s flooded Tham Luang cave system. Rick needed to rely on the experiences, knowledge, and friendships he’d garnered throughout his 40 years of this obsessive hobby as he carefully planned and then successfully executed one of the most noteworthy rescue missions on record.
