There will be a Pool Freediving competition held by ApneistsUK (www.freedivers.co.uk) on November 29th 2014 in Manchester. The organiser will be Steve Millard. There will be both complete beginners and current record holders attending, and anyone is free to join in whatever their level. If you don’t feel like competing, come and watch or even help out for the experience. There are viewing galleries for spectators. It will be an excellent warm up competition for the 6th Great Northern in 2015 on March 21st and 22nd in Liverpool.
It is the 12th AIDA recognised event by the group over the past 5 years. This competition will be small, relaxed and informal, no large prizes, but will hold AIDA ranking status. The event is supported by the Freediving grant from the British Freediving Association (BFA www.britishfreediving.org), and will be held in Greater Manchester at the Life Leisure Stockport Grand Central pool. This is a long course, 50 metre pool. It will take the form of a single event with the possibility of a second. The choice is between swimming distance with a mono fin (DYN), swimming distance without fins (DNF) or maximum stationary breath hold (STA).
Registration will be from 5.30pm. The pool is booked from 7.00pm – 9.00pm. The first dive will be around 7.45pm for spectators.
