Two hundred divers to form underwater human chain in Guinness attempt

Volunteer diver Cyprus will on Sunday attempt to create the longest underwater human chain to secure a place in the Guinness Book of Records.

The attempt will be made between 8am and 11am at Molos in the old Limassol port.

Cypriots and not only volunteer divers from all parts of the island will join in the attempt.

The goal is to promote Cyprus and scuba diving.

More than 200 Divers (men and women) will dive to a depth of five metres, for about 10 minutes, forming the human chain.

The effort, involves organised diving academies and associations as well as individuals – volunteers of underwater diving enthusiasts.

It is being supported by Flyboarding Cyprus which will put on a show.

In 2015, Italy broke the participation record with 173 underwater divers on the island of Elba. A prior record was in 2013 with 110 divers participating on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean.

“We want this record and we are all working hard to achieve. We really want to show how wonderful and safe the sport of scuba diving can be,” the organisers said.

“Cyprus has year-round warm waters, suitable for year-round scuba diving.  We aim to spread our sport to all Cypriots and tourists by projecting Cyprus as a diving tourism destination – And we are sure that our event will be excellent ”
