Underwater MarathonBallyholme Dive Team - June 2017
On 17th June 2017, members of Ballyholme Dive Team will don their SCUBA and enter the waters of Ballyholme bay where a circuit, “the grid”, is pegged to the sea bed. Buddy pairs will complete three laps (1 mile) and exit the water, this will give the divers a chance to rest before re-entering the water again for another mile. This will continue until the total distance board reads 26 miles.
This event has taken months of preparation, planning and training to ensure the task can be completed. Hopefully the hard work pays off and we are able to raise funds for three chosen life saving charities; RNLI, Air Ambulance NI and Cancer Funds For Children Northern Ireland.
