TRT Dive Cancelled!

Everything was set for the "Wreck Tour" , dive team ready , boat ready but unfortunately no one had remembered to sort the weather out! Force 5 winds, low surface vis, rain and recent poor underwater vis sealed the fate of the dive - cancelled! John Liddiard used the freed-up time well by providing the dive team with insights of work & techniques along with some helpful tips on identifying steam ship faetures. Another date will be planned!

T R Thompson "Wreck Tour" Dive ~ 19th May 2005

19th May has been chosen for the DIVER Mag "Wreck Tour" . The dive team will soon be selected. The plan is for the team to dive on Nitrox for this dive . Max depths I have reached on this dive site is 30.5m , and 'shallowest' Max depth has been 27.4m , should give some indications for calculating Nitrox blend! Fingers crossed for good vis!
