T Minus 27! Preparation Time!

Don't get me wrong - you think we haven't been preparing for a llloooooonnnggg time before now?!

But as the first update on the record attempt, it's certainly the beginning of the big count down and time to get on to the final details of preparation.

Sean has been getting in the water with increasing numbers of cylinders as the practice runs continue to extend, hour by hour. It seems silly, but he's also having to practice some rather everyday exercises such as getting food and water into his system - not so everyday when you're underwater! Other little touches include fitting suits with pee-valves for convenience.

On the surface side of the team, Divewise are arranging staffing for the attempt and coordinating dive course classes to visit Sean on the reef with students! Imagine celebrating the final dive of your Open Water course by shaking the hand of a Guiness World Record attempt in the flesh!

There are all sorts of other events and entertainment being arranged - but we'll let you know more about these as they confirm... ooh, got you wondering now...

Watch this space - record breaking in progress...
