Top UK technical diver Mark Powell is to attend Rebreather Forum 3 this coming May.

One of the best known and respected names on the circuit, Mark is also author of ‘Deco for Divers’, an award winning guide to decompression theory.

As a diver since 1987 and one of the UK’s leading technical diving instructors, you might think this old dog has no tricks left to learn. Not so.

Mark said: “The opportunity to get so many divers, instructors, manufacturers and experts together in one place is invaluable. “The rebreather industry is at a critical point in its development. Lessons have been learned regarding training, operations and design of units.

“I expect RF3 to consolidate these lessons and set the direction for the way rebreather diving develops over the next few years.”

Rebreather Forum 2 was held all the way back in 1996, when it proved to be one of the most influential events in the development of technical diving.

Speaking of the show line-up at Rebreather Forum 3, Mark commented: “Simon Mitchell is a ‘must see’ as his talks are always entertaining and incredibly insightful and I also want to listen to Jill Heinerth and Richard Pyle.

“The safety and decompression workshops are the ones I most want to attend and I will definitely be looking forward to the talks by David Doolette, Petar Denoble, Andrew Fock and Bill Stone.”

But it won’t be all work and no play, with a Loud Shirt Party and beach BBQ on the Friday night and a Gala banquet planned for the Saturday.

Rebreather Forum 3 kicks off on May 18th 2012 in Orlando, Florida, with tickets priced from $290.

We’ll give Mark Powell the last word: “If you’re serious about your diving, why would you NOT attend RF3?!”
