An attempt, for charity, to reclaim the Guinness World Record for the “Longest Cold Salt-Water Scubadive” (open sea).

In 2009, our man, Declan Devane, set the first Guinness World Record for the “Longest Cold Salt-Water Scubadive” (open sea) and in doing so both he and the team raised over €35,000 for two children’s cancer charities.

Declan set a time of 11hrs and 42mins without surfacing and without toilet breaks (unless that wasn’t water in his suit!).

In February of this year, 2012, a Maltese team broke this record, after their second attempt, by less than 1 hour.

This October 9th, Paul Devane (Declan’s 'younger' brother) will attempt to reclaim the record in aid of two important charities:

1. Hand in Hand (http://www.handinhand.ie/), the children's cancer charity, a non-profit organisation that provides the families of children with cancer with much-needed practical support.

2. The RNLI (http://www.RNLI.ie/), the charity that saves lives at sea and which operates in both the U.K. and Republic of Ireland.

The attempt will, once again, take place at the beautiful Scubadive West (http://www.scubadivewest.com/), Ireland's leading PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) dive school and scuba dive centre, located in beautiful Connemara on Ireland's west coast. We are celebrating our 20th year in business this year! (1992 - 2012)

RNLI

Organisation ID: CHY02678

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is a registered charity that saves lives at sea. It provides a 24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service to 100 nautical miles out from the coast of the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom. The RNLI, which provides nine out of ten sea rescue launches, continues to rely on voluntary contributions and legacies for its income.

The RNLI in Ireland has 43 lifeboat stations operating 55 lifeboats in order to provide a ring of safety around the Irish coastline. This fleet enables the lifeboat service to reach at least 90% of all casualties that are within 10 nautical miles of lifeboat stations within 30 minutes of launch, in all weathers.
