How the Competition Works

Disciplines at this year’s event include the following:

Constant Weight – Diving down and back up under ones own power wearing a fin Free Immersion – Using the line, one pulls themselves down to depth and back up Constant No-Fins – Without the use of fins or the line, one swims down to depth and back again Static Apnea- In the pool the diver flats face down holding their breath as long as possible Dynamic Apnea- In the pool with a fin on one sees how many lengths they can swim underwater on a single breath Dynamic Apnea without Fins – One a single breath and without the use of fins, one sees how many lengths of a pool they can swim.

During the seven day competition competitors will be able to make attempts during 5 ocean days and 5 pool days. They earn points as follows and the winner will be the diver with the overall highest point score in all disciplines.

Scoring:

Depth Disciplines:1 point for every meter of depth achieved Static Apnea: 1 point for every 5 seconds of breath hold time Dynamic and Dynamic No-Fins: 1 point for every 2 meters of distance

Prizes: TBA

The organizers and staff for DBV will be staying at Coconut Bay condos in West Bay.  They will help you find a roommate (that is part of the competition) or find a private room for you.  Coconut Bay offers 3-level 3-bedroom town homes with full kitchens as well as smaller units.  Contact Duncan Heard at dheard4505@aol.com to reserve your room.  We have competition transportation from this location.

We use Stingray Charters 45ft Newton dive boat for all the diving portions.  It will be leaving out of West Bay Dock unless weather dictates that we meet elsewhere.
