In Australia they will try to break the Guinness Diving Record!

In just three days, on 2 December 2017, an attempt will be made in Australia to break the Guinness Diving Record. Hundreds of divers are expected to turn up at Rye Pier, located south of Melbourne, to collectively create the longest chain the world has seen underwater!

The organisers, as well as those wishing to take part in the record attempt, have quite a challenge ahead of them. For the Guinness World Record so far stands at 308 divers, together forming one unbreakable chain! It was set on 14 May 2017 in Italy.

Interestingly, one of the organisers, Luke English, admits that when they submitted their application to the Guinness World Records office, they intended to fight with a score of “only” 179 divers. But by the time the Australian application was processed and given the green light, the score had jumped to 308.

[blockquote style=”2″]”Wanting to organise an interesting event, turned into a huge logistical challenge. So I approached the Dive Industry Association and suggested that it would be best to do it together. Then we have the best chance of success.” – explained Luke English[/blockquote].

More than 400 divers have registered for the event so far, but what will be important is how many of them get underwater and together form a living chain.

[blockquote style=”2″]”I would rather break this record by just a few people than crush the previous result. That way we could generate more interest in further attempts in the future.” – added English[/blockquote].

The event is organised by the Dive Industry of Victoria Association – D.I.V.A. Participants are required to register and pay an entry fee of $25. In return, in addition to the opportunity to break the Guinness World Record, they will also receive a commemorative T-shirt.

More information about the event can be found here.
