Sadly, yesterday's attempt on the world Scuba-diving Santa record failed at a mere 142 divers (10 of whom failed to complete a ten-minute dive after entering the water). The almost freezing water of Vobster Quay, near Bath in the UK, wasn't conducive to ambient light photography, either...

Nice one, Tim.

So does that mean that those of us who went last time are still world record holders?

I guess so...

... except: wasn't it unofficial last year? :)

There were some professional photographers present, so can you please be careful with how you use the image? I shot it for fun, and you can borrow it for personal use with my blessing, but you should acknowledge me if you use it in public, please.

So, what is the official record now? How long does the diver have to stay under before it becomes a record Santa dive?

We had 142; the record is 158. All to be in the water simultaneously, and everyone to remain in the water for at least 10 minutes. Santa must have a red hat with white trimming, beard, red jacket with trimming, red trousers and a black belt!
