10-11 Registration and preparation
11-14 Diving and cleanup
14-16 Event closing
During the diving and cleanup phase, Vanhan Käpylän VPK will be joining in and rinsing the divers coming out of the water (provided they are not called for emergency).
The area of the cleanup is a boat peer with some possible boat traffic and very limited visibility. We will have someone on a boat closing off the area from the sea side, however caution is still advised. All diving will be conducted using surface ropes (á la ice-diving practices) to a maximum of 20m from the shore. Each diver will have a surface tender, and additionally a surface safety diver will be present.
All the collected trash will be sorted and Kristiina Tuura, an artist, will turn it into art later.
The project area is located within Helsinki’s “Zone 1”, so Saturday is paid-parking. Wärtsilä has promised to reimburse the parking costs. NOTE: The parking meters near the site use coins! We will have some “for emergency”, but please bring some of your own too.
We will provide some snacks and refreshments for the registered participants of the event.
SeaSafety and Sukelluskoulu Aalto have kindly offered to fill tanks of the participants for the event. Tanks should be delivered Friday latest. Note you can only get the fill if you have registered for the event on the registration form!
