Phil Short at the Rebreather Reunion April 2019

Phil Short

We are pleased to announce our first guest speaker at Rebreather Reunion 2019 will be Phil Short. He will present a 60min talk on J2 1000 hours under the earth. Using CCR in extreme places.

A combination of Dry Caving, Cave Diving and CCR as a lead exploration diver on the United States Deep Cave Diving team J2 cave project under the leadership of Bill Stone that saw Phil and Marcin Gala pass the 4th sump in the J2 cave to discover dry cave beyond at over 1 kilometre vertical and 12 kilometres horizontal from the entrance. The project utilised Poseidon MK 6 CCR and saw Phil spend 45 days underground during the 3 month project.

In 2015 Phil became a member of the Explorers Club, being sponsored by Bill Stone and Jill Heinerth.

Phil was awarded ‘Diver of The Conference’ award at the Tek Dive USA conference 2016.

Fellow of The Royal Geographical Society (FRGS)

Over a 25 year professional dive industry career Phil has logged over 8000 dives and 3500 plus hours on CCR
