The dates for the first US Freediving Federation and CMAS-sanctioned freediving competition in the USA have been announced.
The 2018 Hawai’i Cup of Freediving will take place in Hawai’i August 24-27, 2018. The event currently has 13 registered athletes including three females and is looking to attract more participants. According to the event creators this is a more “chilled” depth competition that is aimed at attracting new participants than it is at attracting the international elite freedivers. The event features include:
- 25-strong support crew.
- A depth limit of 75m/~246ft
- Competition entry fees of US$125/~€110/~£98
Interestingly since this is the first USFF and CMAS competition, the deepest dive in every category will qualify as a US national record.
There is also space for more support crew for the event. Support crew members will benefit from free safety training, and complimentary access to the U.S. premiere of “Dolphin Man,” as well as the main event’s after party.
