Freedive Dahab. The previous record was 80m by me in 2008.
The dive took 2min32sec and was to the bottom of the Blue Hole Dahab.

It felt an easy dive. I have been training for one week and had to  
overcome sinus problems for the first few days of the week. It was  
sweet for the sinuses to clear up and let me start to get back to  
where I left off 2 years ago.

100m is on the cards as soon as I can get into some deep water again.
