Dahab FreeDiving competition to go ahead as planned

The Triple Depth competition hosted by Lotta & Peter Ericsson and Linda Paganelli of Freedive Dahab is set to go ahead in June 2006 despite the recent bombings in Dahab, Egypt.

"The best thing you all can do to support us now is to keep coming to Dahab!" says Lotta "Please come and honour the spirit of our friends who were hurt"

The freediving community is rallying around the members of the community based in Dahab. Many people are continuing with their plans to travel to Egypt

"Diving is a sport in which people from wealthy countries work directly with the poorer communities in the world, providing income and training. I have had three cancellations only. I have been very encouraged hearing from all individuals and groups who have said they are still coming here as planned – and others making new enquiries and bookings" explains Lotta.
