Extreme Ironing World Record Attempt


UK divers break world record for the most number of divers ironing underwater and raised over 15,000 for the RNLI.

128 scuba divers braved the freezing temperatures on 10th January 2009, to attempt to break the world record, currently held by the Australians, for the most number of divers ironing at the same time underwater. The previous record was 72 but the Brits managed to get 86 ironing within a 10 minute period (including 6 freedivers). Water temperatures were in the region of 5 degrees Celsius and air as low as -2 degrees C. Divers covered the full range from technical diving with trimix at 55m to the shallow end at 6m.

The event took place at the National Diving and Activity Centre (NDAC) near Chepstow and was organised by Gareth Lock, Morag Ward and John Turnock of the Yorkshire Divers internet forum.
