Diving in the world's deepest pool...
This winter, the Subea team attended a seminar in Italy at "Y40 The Deep Joy", the deepest diving pool in the world.Two days of group activities punctuated, as is often the case, by dives. But this time, the team also participated in a new physiological test protocol put forward by DAN Europe (Divers Alert Network).Below, is our "dive log" for this particularly unusual spot. On the programme, a freediving session in the morning and a dive in the afternoon :-)
Why Y40? It's quite simple!
The amazing thing here is the complex itself, the intelligence of the engineers who built this centre, and the warm thermal water (you dive in your swimsuit). You move through “caves”, exploring the various platforms (the deepest is at -40 m).
Despite the presence of a few spearfishermen, our team is mainly made up of scuba divers (from instructor to Open Water). For many, the prospect of a freediving session under the guidance of instructors was very exciting!
What do you do at -40 m in a pool? You take a break!
