Italy sets world record for night diving

Italian divers have managed to set a World Record for the number of people taking part in night diving. On Saturday 17 September, during an event organised by the RAID Italia group off the coast of Elba, 133 divers went underwater at the same time. The initiative by the Italians adds flavour and heats up the competition ahead of the worldwide event, Diversnight scheduled for 5 November 2016.

The record for the largest number of simultaneous night dives is already the second World Record set by the relatively young organisation RAID Italia. A year earlier in September 2015, divers affiliated under the RAID aegis created the longest chain of divers taking part in a single dive. It has to be said that this is a respectable result, and the Italians can organise themselves to carry out a dive combining a huge number of participants.

Looking at the aerial photographs of the immersion in the coastal waters of Elba, it is hard to decide whether the organisational talent of the RAID Italia team or the photographic documentation of the entire event is more impressive.

The enormous amount of diving light seen from a bird’s eye view over such a small stretch of land is reminiscent of sci-fi film stills of spaceships emerging from the depths of the sea.

All divers taking part in the event carried out a dive to a minimum depth of 10 metres, thus setting a new World Record which will be entered in the Guinness Book of Records.

So another RAID Italia record has become a fact and only two questions remain. First – what will the Italians prepare next year? And the second – will there be a team strong enough to dethrone the new record holders on 5 November 2016 during the worldwide Diversnight?
