EYsailing To Host German Freediver Tim Oehmingen In August 2018

The folks at EYSailing are hosting German national record holder Tim Oehmingen this coming August.

Tim sailed with EYsailing in 2017 in preparation for the World Championships and enjoyed the trip a lot. During that trip, he realized it was ideal not only for training but also for developing freediving skills.

A competitive freediver, having broken four German National records in all depth disciplines and participated in several AIDA World Championships, Oehmingen is an AIDA Master Instructor.

During the August trip, Oehmingen will guide guests through their AIDA 1, 2, 3 or 4 certificate courses. He will be sharing information on a variety of freediving topics and skills like:

– Problem analyzing for the four major limits in freediving
– Visualization techniques
– Mental preparation and basic meditation knowledge
– Techniques in FIM/CNF/CWT.

From August 25th to September 1st, 2018, the seven-day trip aboard EYSailing’s 44-foot/13.4-meter sailing yacht Lito will allow guests to develop freediving techniques while exploring the beauty of the Greek islands. The Lito will start and end from the island of Lefkas (closest airport Preveza PVK) and visit the islands of Kastos, Kalamos, Atokos, Ithaca, Kefalonia and Meganisi.

Only six places are available aboard the Lito, in three double and spacious cabins with two bathrooms and three showers.

The cost of the trip will be €1200/~US$1479 per person including all the yacht and freediving costs, weights, ropes, buoys, breakfast, linens and all the related costs. Only flight tickets and lunch/dinners are not included.
