To launch our liveaboard booking engine ScubaClick Ltd is organizing a Guinness World Record™ attempt in the category ‘Most People Scuba Diving’ in Swanage, Dorset, United Kingdom. The event will take place on Saturday the 24th September 2011 with Sunday the 25th being reserved should the weather not be favourable on the Saturday.
Now, all we need is you! First and foremost we need divers to take part. The current record is held by the Indonesian Navy with 2.486 divers diving simultaneously in August 2009. To help with surface cover we need kayak operators as well as dive boat operators.
The primary aim of the world record attempt is to raise money for local and national charities such as:
- Swanage Heroes Haven: a registered local charity raising money to purchase, equip and run a specially adapted log cabin for the use of disabled service personnel and their families on a local holiday park in Swanage
- The RNLI: a charity for beach and sea safety
- The Scuba Trust: a disabled diving charity
All divers will be asked to pay £10 to take part in the event and to raise further money through personal sponsorship. We thus hope to raise over £150,000 for charitable causes.
Please follow this link for further information on the event. Hope to see you all in Swanage celebrating the new record!
