Diving Santa Clauses are required for a fundraising mass dive at Somerset’s Vobster Quay in the week before Christmas.
The dive, organised by Yorkshire Divers member Lloyd Watkin, will take place on 19 December.
The aim is to raise a healthy sum for the RNLI and to set a world record for the number of Santas diving together at one time.
It will probably be quite chilly – talk about red, white and blue – but Watkin’s hope is to exceed the number of Santas who dived together at Vobster a year ago.
Then, 158 divers bedecked in red tunics and hats descended together.
They raised a seriously useful £10,000 for the RNLI and, Watkin tells Divernet, the dive was recognised as a record by “several of the smaller agencies, the most visible being the World Records Academy”.
Watkin is inviting those who dived last year to return, and for any other divers interested to go along in order to boost the number beyond last year’s count.
Again, participating divers are being asked to raise sponsorship for the RNLI, and Watkin hopes to have the dive recognised by Guinness World Records in a newly created category.
