On 1st June 2013 Lochaline will be hosting the Guinness World Record attempt for the longest open sea scuba dive in cold water which is currently sitting at 13 hours 4 min. Lochaline Dive Centre will be providing support in the form of Sound Diver as the dive platform & the dive will take place at Lochaline Harbour. The attempt ‘team’ is to be a cross section of all divers from various organisations including HSE, PADI, BSAC & HM Forces. The attempt has to be in open Sea with a min depth of 10m and a sea temperature of not more than 14 deg C. The diver ‘Robbie’ will remain on a sub surface stage moored to the seabed, with a bank of compressed air cylinders. There will be no umbilical connection to the surface and the set up is described as SCUBA.
Good luck Robbie!
