7th Mediterranean Freediving World Cup


Well-Known Member
Jan 25, 2006
Dear Friends,

Freediving Club Greece is planning a freediving filled summer for 2014 and staying true to our ideal that freediving can be more than just massive depths, records, judge cards and tags, we are planning to host the 3 week Mediterranean World Cup which has reached its 7th year.

After two successful events in 2012 and 2013 the Mediterranean World Cup is staying in our favourite destination in the island of Crete. Our base in the seaside village of Myrtos (http://www.myrtos.org/ 90km south of Heraklion City in Crete) proved ideal and the event will be hosted again there in 2014. The event will be a 3 week opportunity for freedivers from around the world to meet and train in one of the most beautiful sceneries on the planet.

Dates: June 1st to June 22nd

Weeks 1, 2: Training Weeks and AIDA Instructor Course Weeks
Week 3 Training and 5 days of Mediterranean World Cup (CWT/CNF/FIM available on all Cup days. Exact competition dates to be announced in collaboration with registered athletes.)

Training and Courses:
Training setup will be the same boat based setup as we have used in the past 6 years with a main dive boat with motorized counter ballast and transfer boats. Our trusted safety team will of course be there to help with your training, advise, laugh and share the amazing moments you will be spending in the Mediterranean Waters.

In order to provide the best level of safety and enjoyment during the 7th Mediterranean World Cup event for this year we are limiting the number of participating athletes to a maximum of 25 freedivers per week.

An AIDA Instructor Course will run during the first two weeks of the Event with a chance for athletes to both train and attend a top level course organized by AIDA Instructor Trainer Stavros Kastrinakis. For beginner freedivers and people who want to experience the peace and beauty of diving on a single breath of air Freediving Club Greece will be running all levels of course during the 6th Mediterranean World Cup from AIDA1* Introduction to Freediving up to AIDA Instructor Courses.

We would also like to extend an invitation to all Freediving Instructors who wish to attend the event in order to run their own courses and take advantage of our infrastructure both in and out of the water as well as a beautiful setting in Crete (Special low student rates will of course be available for your students if running a course in conjunction with the 7th Mediterranean World Cup).


We have pre-booked a limited number of rooms in Kastro Hotel in Myrtos (http://www.kastro-myrtos.gr/ ) at discounted prices. Rates and rooms available are:
  • Double Rooms: 50 euro per night (most include double beds)
  • Triple Rooms: 60 euro per night (includes double beds)
  • 4 people apartment 75 euro per night (includes double beds)
  • Twin Room Apartments: 70 euro per night (up to 4 people)
All rooms include full kitchen facilities and several supermarkets and stores selling local products can be found in Myrtos.

For additional information or to book your place please contact me by email at: [email protected].

Looking forward to seeing you all in Crete,

Stavros Kastrinakis
