To celebrate PADI women’s dive day 2019 Divetech have once again brought together women hand in hand, breaking their own World Record!
In July 2018, 86 women created a human chain along a 300ft line at Divetech’s shore diving location, this year the ladies smashed their own record with 107 female divers!
Although the event was organized by Divetech support was received from many of the other dive centres in Grand Cayman who donated, staff, tanks and equipment to ensure the record could be broken.
On the day itself the community came together with businesses donating hundreds of dollars worth of prizes for a raffle. Representatives from the Cayman Department of Environment, the Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI) and Lionfish Cull experts were on hand to educate the attendee’s as well as the local marine police helping with safety & surface watch.
All proceeds from the charitable event were donated to the Cayman Breast Cancer Foundation with $6,500 US raised in total.
Divetech’s owner Joanna Mikutowicz has a long-standing history flying the flag for women in diving creating a female force to be reckoned with. Her passion for all things pink has created an intriguing talking point, not only on our small island but globally, proving that you can be both feminine and a respected industry leader.
