Calling All Divers
Hi There Everyone,
Thanks for rolling in. This is my first venture into the dark depths of the world of Blog, so let’s hope it all works. I’m inviting you all to chip in and take part so please don’t be shy.
This Free Open Blog is being launched in order to bring to your attention the recent, June 2012, claim by Mark Colman for a New World Record : ‘Longest Continuous SCUBA Dive in a ‘Controlled Environment’.
These Record Claims have been popping up to the surface from time to time over the past 25 years or so, each time ‘The Rules’ seem to have been changed and the actual dive duration has now become a series of short dives with surface intervals, this is therefore nothing at all like ‘the longest or continuous’ .. in my book.
What will follow is intended to be an attempt to get the real record acknowledged and the Guinness Book of World Records updated and put straight. Following that we need to ask for a permanent and realistic set of internationally agreed Record Rules, in order that any future claimants will know exactly what they are getting into and what they need to achieve.
This is my opening post, I’m just testing the water here, more will follow as we get the blog rolling. I look forward to reading your contributions .. so please do chip in. Cheers.
Stay Safe. Tango
