NANCY EASTERBROOK INDUCTED TO WOMEN DIVERS HALL OF FAME
 
Nancy Easterbrook of Divetech Ltd
 
Renowned technical diver Nancy Easterbrook of Divetech Ltd. has joined the elite divers of the world with her induction into the Class of 2012 Women Divers Hall of Fame (WDHOF). Her vision was to take the Cayman Islands into the world of adventure and exploration diving - a mission accomplished. Not only is Easterbrook a pioneer in the dive industry as a whole, but in the Cayman Islands she is known for offering services in the areas of nitrox training and support, rebreathers and technical diving that few were providing.
 
Easterbrook's dedication to the Cayman Islands community is perfectly demonstrated through her eight-year stint as Project Manager of the ex-USS Kittiwake which led to its scuttling off Cayman's Seven Mile Beach in 2011, and she is actively involved with the island's youth. Still based in Grand Cayman, Easterbrook has set in stone her position as a notable Technical Diving Pioneer, Marine Environmentalist, Lobbyist and Conservationist.
 
Congratulations, Nancy!
