It all comes down to this Saturday. A group of female scuba divers will attempt to break the world record they set last year for the number of women diving at once, forming an underwater chain.
Divetech, located at 571 North West Point Road, organised the event in 2018, which saw 86 lady divers in the water. They created a human chain along a 300‑foot line suspended at 15 feet, fulfilling the requirements for the record to be considered official. They also raised over US$3,000 for the Cayman Islands Breast Cancer Foundation.
This year, over 100 divers have registered. Assuming all goes to plan, the record will be broken on Saturday afternoon.
Although registration is now closed for safety and logistical reasons, there are still ways for the public to get involved in this historical event, which runs from 12:30‑5pm. There will be raffle tickets for sale with lots of great prizes to be won, such as a stay at the Holiday Inn, vouchers for bars and restaurants, lionfish jewellery and Bliss Yoga packages. There will also be representatives from local conservation organisations on site sharing information about island ocean issues.
All participants will get free cocktails courtesy of The Lodge and Champagne courtesy of Premier Crew, while anyone attending the event can take advantage of half-price drinks, thanks to VIVO Café. Peripheral Life & Style will be selling sunglasses, with 50% of all proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Foundation.
