A new record in deep diving at Baikal was made by instructor TDI Gennady Misan, who made a dive on 140 meters! Gennady used 2 mixes of trimix fro a dive and 3 nitrox for decompression. See photographs and article "The record dive in Lake Baikal".
First winter ice jeep-safari of the season has finished! Participants: club "BaikalTek". The road from Irkutsk to Island Olkhon was traditional: with stops for the eating of pozy (buryat national cuisine) and the ritual of bringing a victim to Baikal's god Burkhan when entering the ice (it's spraying of vodka). We lived in the guest hall of Nikita Bencharov in Khuzhir.
