The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) is supporting The Bubbleheads, a team of four divers, as they embark on a major challenge to row across the Atlantic Ocean from La Gomera in the Canary Isles to Antigua in the Caribbean in the 3,000-mile Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2021 to raise money for the Wessex Cancer Trust and the British Legion.
IMCA has long supported deep sea saturation divers and their work, providing guidance to ensure safe operations.
Allen Leatt, IMCA Chief Executive stated
We fully respect and support the worthy charitable background and nature of this endeavour.
“As long-serving saturation divers, they know all about resilience; the importance of planning and preparation; and of being in peak physical condition.
“We are confident that their working practices of discipline and teamwork will stand them in good stead. We wish them well in completing their mission safely and reaching their own goals.
The Bubbleheads will start their challenge on 12 December. More information and a link to their fund-raising page can be found at www.thebubbleheads.co.uk
