After the end of Act 1 on Wednesday, the athletes, safeties, and organizers at OriginECN Vertical Blue had a well-deserved break on Thursday.

The action kicks off again for Day 4, official now in Act 2 of 3, on Friday with 25 competitors taking to the beautiful waters of Deans Blue Hole in the Bahamas.

No less than 7 National Records are possible today along with Alessia Zecchini (Italy) going for her World Record attempt in Free Immersion (FIM) that she called off on Wednesday.
