Constant Ballast

The Constant Ballast event was held off a barge anchored just offshore from Lions Bay. Competitors were bused from the accomodations at UBC to the Lions Bay Marina.

In order to maximize the tide windows, there were two competition lines, with one line active at a time. The competition zone processed process two competitors every ten minutes.

Vancouver's safety scuba divers are world-class and very experienced. Our core deep safety team has been working CAFA competitions since its very beginning in 2000. Some of our divers have helped out in over eight local competitions, providing safety and support in Vancouver's challenging conditions.
