Underwater World Apnea Outdoor Championship- Ischia Island, Naples, Italy


The CMAS Underwater World Apnea Outdoor Championship in its first edition, organized by FIPSAS, will take place on the Island of Ischia, in the locality of Sant’Angelo (Municipality of Serrara Fontana) from 4 to 11 October 2015.

The following specialties will be staged:  

1. Constant weight with two fins (CWT BP) M/F 
2. Constant weight with monofin (CWT) M/F
3. Constant weight without fins (CNF) M/F
4. Jump Blue (JB) M/F 

In the last few years, FIPSAS, in agreement with CMAS, has introduced changes to competitive outdoor apnea activity, turning the traditional formula of individual record attempts into extemporaneous competitions among several divers. . 

In addition to being a major international event, with the participation of the world’s best divers, this initiative will also be an opportunity to attract all outdoor apnea enthusiasts to Ischia. The Organising Committee has planned a number of initiatives, including a “tourist package” offer aimed at all FIPSAS members. 

Participating countries are: Algeria, Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Ecuador, France, Italy, Morocco, South Korea, Switzerland, Turkey and Venezuela.
