I was intending to see the Red Bull Cliff Diving in Wadi Shab today, and was given an extra push when Stacey of the promotions team gave me a nice VIP pass – was it for World Tourism Day – 27th September??.
The Red Bull Dive platform is set 25 + meters up one of the sheer cliffs and the divers have to climb up a ladder and then walk onto the platform and off into the air until they hit the water.
A very spectacular setting. The crowd was a great mix of people from young toddlers to people probably into their 70s and they were entertained not only by the superb dives (which Gary Hunt of Britain won) but by a catchy disco. If you can see the diver below you will get an idea of scale
