3rd Spanish Open Water Free-diving Championships

For the second year running, the waters of Puerto del Carmen will be the venue for the third ever Spanish Outdoor Free-diving Championship.

The competition will take place 200 metres from the shore at Playa Chica over two days, 19th and 20th October, between 8am and 1pm. Spain’s best will be competing for medals along with some of the world’s top free-divers.

The four categories being contested are: constant weight with mono-fins; constant weight with bi-fins; constant weight no-fins and free immersion.

This year’s event introduces the Open category, which invites anyone to take part. There will also be marquees set up at Playa Chica beach with members of the Pastinaca Dive Club there to help those that want to take the plunge and experience their first ever dive.

A gala will held in the Varadero Plaza on 20th October at 8pm when the prize-giving ceremony will take place and video footage of the Championship’s best moments will be shown for all to enjoy.
