To all interested Freedivers,

For the 3rd year in a row, Immersion will be hosting one of the worlds largest freediving competitions. THE DATE; December 11…12, 2004. THE PLACE; Eindhoven, Netherlands.

This year the ‘3rd Dutch Apnea Open’ will be even bigger than the previous years and will feature athletes from about 12 countries and a program of fun activities besides the competition. The competition will be an AIDA Open National competition, so your results will count for the AIDA ranking.

On Saturday afternoon we offer you the possibility to train in the competition pool and we are working very hard to have a famous freediver hosting a training for you. If you don’t need or don’t like to train; Immersion offers you the unique opportunity to try mono- and bi-fins from Special fins in the pool. For this occasion Jyri Käosaar will come to Netherlands and there will be as many fins as possible at the poolside. WARNING; We do our best to surprise you even more on the training…..

Join the athletes dinner at restaurant ‘Listers’ (close to the pool) where you can eat an excellent meal: 3 courses and 3 drinks for only € 25. Combine the enjoyment of delicious food and the opportunity to meet your fellow freedivers and competitors.

After a good nights sleep we meet again at the pool for the competition. Starting from 8.30 you can register for the competition and we will start with the opening ceremony around 10.00. The competition will be covered by Deeperblue.

You like to do a Worldrecord? No problem, we have the judges, the doping sets and the video on spot for every competitor. We even will compensate a part of the actual testing costs for you, please let us know if you are planning to do a WR.
