Additional Info: Dear Friends,

Freediving Club Greece the organizer of the 2013 AIDA Depth World Championships is planning another fun event for the summer of 2013 - the 6th Mediterranean World Cup.

After a successful event in 2012 the 6th Mediterranean World Cup is staying in our favorite destination in the island of Crete. Last year?s base in the seaside village of Myrtos ( 90km south of Heraklion City in Crete) proved ideal and the event will be hosted again there in 2013. The event will be a 3 week opportunity for freedivers from around the world to meet and train in one of the most beautiful sceneries on the planet.

Dates: May 26th to June 16th
Weeks 1, 2: Training Weeks and AIDA Instructor Course Weeks
Week 3 Training and 4 days of Mediterranean World Cup (CWT/CNF/FIM available on all Cup days. Exact competition dates to be announced in collaboration with registered athletes. We will also include a STA day option)

Training and Courses:
Training setup will be the same boat based setup as we have used in the past 5 years with a main dive boat with motorized counter ballast and transfer boats. Our trusted safety team will of course be there to help with your training, advise, laugh and share the amazing moments you will be spending in the Mediterranean Waters.

In order to provide the best level of safety and enjoyment during the 6th Mediterranean World Cup event for this year we are limiting the number of participating athletes to a maximum of 25 freedivers per week.

An AIDA Instructor Course will run during the first two weeks of the Event with a chance for athletes to both train and attend a top level course organized by AIDA Instructor Trainer Stavros Kastrinakis. For beginner freedivers and people who want to experience the peace and beauty of diving on a single breath of air Freediving Club Greece will be running all levels of course during the 6th Mediterranean World Cup from AIDA1* Introduction to Freediving up to AIDA Instructor Courses.

We would also like to extend an invitation to all Freediving Instructors who wish to attend the event in order to run their own courses and take advantage of our infrastructure both in and out of the water as well as a beautiful setting in Crete (Special low student rates will of course be available for your students if running a course in conjunction with the 6th Mediterranean World Cup).

Competition Fees
300euro per week of training (Boat dives, safety divers, motorized counterballast and working sonars)
400euro for the competition week
