A diver in standard diving dress (copper helmet, weights and boots) standing on the summit of Ben Nevis

At 2pm on Monday 3rd September the team of divers led by Ginge Fullen made it to the top of Ben Nevis in record time. A team of divers made the 1350m climb in full standard dress (weights, copper helmet, boots and suit) starting with a dive in Loch Linnhe on 1st September. It was a world first and the whole team deserve our admiration and congratulations.

In the process they raised more than they had hoped for their three chosen charities: Lochlaber Mountain Rescue, the family of the Thai diver who died trying to save the boys trapped in the cave in Thailand and the Historical Diving Society (our mothership).
It is never to late recognise their achievement with a donation – they certainly deserve it! You can donate at their crowdfunding page: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/subseatosummit

We hope to have many more photos and information to share with you.
