For those of you who read John Bennett's recent article in Diver about his record breaking dive to over 1000ft, I have it on good authority that someone else is training to try and smash that! Remember another recent article in Diver regarding Chris Boardman's PADI tec-rec course in the Red Sea? Well, if you re-read the article, the guy who trained him (Leigh) is planning to assail Mr Bennett's record soonish! How do I know? Ah, well my brother is an instructor in Dahab and he is best mates with Leigh! Will try and get some further information as and when its available but bloody #### - where will it all end? Makes me hit panic mode just thinking about it!

Regards

Is he the one who's had his chromed cylinders on display at the last couple of Dive Shows? The ones that look like a giant coffee-making machine?

I meant to go and catch his presentation at the dive show but there were so many things I wanted to see that I had to form the strategy of watching half and half of a few things. I quite enjoyed Jack Ingles and the freedivers (hey that's a new band!! ) although I didn't enjoy missing out on a go in the rebreather pool as I left my logbook at home!

You sat through Jack Ingles talking about kit configuration and didn't explode? I'm impressed


He was one of the instructors when I did my ITC course...

Hehe..no Dom, I didn't explode although I could be seen to have a silly grin at points!  Especially when the first thing I saw was independent twins fnar fnar.
