Egypt Scuba Challenge
This summer, on the 26th of July 2011, divers from all over the world will attempt to break the world record in carrying out the largest collective dive, right here in Hurghada. The current world record was made on the 17th of August 2009 in Manado, Indonesia. The Indonesian navy managed to have 2486 people dive at the same time at the same location. The “Egypt Scuba Challenge” wants to break this record and is aiming for 3000 divers.
A couple of months ago the “Egyptian Divers Syndicate” came up with the idea and has been working on the organisation of the event in cooperation with HEPCA. We have been looking for a spot that is suitable to hold such a huge amount of divers without any detrimental effect on the environment and have agreed on the outside area of the New Marina in Hurghada.
This location has a large sandy plateau at 12-13 meters depth, which is capable of holding 3000 divers. There is hardly any marine life there, but plenty of rubbish. For this reason we do not only want to break the world record for the largest collective dive, but also the world record for the largest underwater cleanup.
Both records have already been applied for and were accepted by Guinness World Records.
We are asking all dive centres and travel agents operating in the Red Sea to support the event and actively promote it amongst their guests. In order for the event to succeed and reach a participation rate of more than 2486 divers, we all need to work together for it. The world record attempt will help promote tourism in Egypt and, at the same time, raise environmental awareness.
It is very sad to see the amount of rubbish underwater in front of the new marina. There are far more ropes, towels, bottles, cans and plastic than marine life.
Various media and TV channels have already announced their interest to cover the event and make it public on an international level.
If your company is interested in supporting, promoting or taking part in the event, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will get you in contact with the organisers, who will provide you with promotional material and ideas.
If you’d like to be part of the world record attempt and are a qualified diver (minimum required level: open water diver) start searching for flights to Egypt and we look forward to seeing you here in July!
