Great photos, Sam. Hopefully Laura will have some out soon too.

We had a fantastic time out there, although there were some highs and lows as well. Most of the group had 'Man-Flu' bugs, and for Anne-Marie this meant she couldn't perform on the record setting days. I managed to dehydrate myself and paid for this on the first day of record setting with a consciousness outage. As Linda said to the camera about my Free Immersion dive, "The attempt was unsuccessfull". Whoops.

Ben did great guns, and is now Australia's deepest male ( see news item ).

We all learnt a lot about sled diving too. There's a bit more to it than just getting a free ride. More things to concentrate on, with less ability to do that with narcosis setting in. But Linda and Lotta have very high safety standards, and we were lucky to have Laura Storm and Monkey Matt as Angels backing us up. Also Sam and Sofus doing freedive support for us.

Freediving in Dahab rocks!

Cornwall (and a bit of Chepstow)
I blame benny, must have been some weird aussie virus. Us Brits just don't breed stuff like that ; )

shame really, if I'd had it last week I could have used it as an excuse for being rubbish on the sled....(rather than the real reason - pure unadulterated fear!!)

So maybe next year Saltfree should organise our Christmas dive in Dahab.

I'm just down the road in Hurghada and the water is a delicious 24 degrees at 40m, not looking forward to going home tomorrow.

Well done on the record Ben. Shame the lurgy hit the rest of you.

See you all in fancy dress then in January. I think there should be a prize for who can stay in the water the longest without contracting hypathermia.

Happy Christmas to you all.
