The 8th Great Northern UK Freediving Competition Starts This Weekend

The 8th Great Northern AIDA freediving competition is almost here – kicking off this coming weekend in Manchester, UK.

Featuring two days of competitions. Day one on April 15th is a standalone Dynamic No Fins (DNF) competition. Day two on April 16th is the BFA UK National pool competition which is a combined point score of two disciplines. Everyone must complete a Static (STA) dive and then a choice of Dynamic with fins (DYN) or Dynamic no fins (DNF). DNF points will be multiplied by 1.3 to ‘normalise’ the results and give everyone a fairer chance of winning. There is also a podium for International athletes too.
