Skopje, 19 August 2017 (MIA) - Polish diver Krzysztof Starnawski broke his own record at the underwater Vrelo cave in the Matka canyon by diving to depths of 240 meters. Accompanies by his team and the Macedonian cave diving teams Vrelo and Aquatek, Starnawski took five hours to reach the record depth.
"Vrelo is truly a remarkable cave, with crystal clear waters and huge galleries. We made examinations of the cave at 240 meters under the water level and 800 meters in length. This helped us determine numerous new venues for the next expedition. I'm searching for the deepest underwater cave in the world, and Vrelo can well be the deepest cave ever explored by man", said Starnawski, adding that he hopes it might well be the deepest overall.
Starnawski dove to 230 meters in 2016, and broke the 212 meters record set by Italian diver Luigi Casati in 2010.
The Vrelo cave has been examined frequently, by Macedonian and international cave diving expeditions, but questions remain about its exact depth and spread of the tunnels and caverns. "We showed that there are still numerous options for exploring the cave and we are proud to have been able to write a new page in the history of the Matka Vrelo cave", said Daniel Atanasovski from the Aquatek club.cc/14:33
