June 2016 – Free Diving anyone?

Go Freediving

Our social evening this month featured a talk by Heather Coutts on Free Diving.  Heather used to be a scuba diver but once she tried free diving she hasn’t put tanks on her back again!  

Heather gave a presentation which included a bit of her background (see here for more information about her) and then a general overview of freediving.  This included the history, freediving disciplines and some of the physiology.  After a very interesting 45 minutes we had the opportunity to do an apnea test to see how long we could hold our breath and try to improve.  Quite challenging!  More information can be found at the Go Freediving website if anyone is interested in taking a course.
