The plan will be to dive the Derbent , a World War One triple expansion steam engine powered tanker of 3178 tons. She was built in 1907 and sunk after being torpedoed in 1917. Wreck tour guide attached. (Including a misprint that describes it as ‘A nice easy wreck shallow enough for basic training dives’, its not J)
The top of the wreck will be around 32m with seabed around 42m, this trip will be limited to Dive Leader (or equivalent) and above.
We will depart from Bull Bay as it is a better slip for Ribs than Amlwch. The wreck is about 7 miles out from Bull Bay. It will be a fairly early start as we need to be on site in plenty of time to locate and shot the wreck before slack at around 10:20 am.
Initially this trip will be limited to a maximum of 6 divers and run from the Delta.
Depending on the amount of interest from divers, availability of non-diving cox and a second tow vehicles we may put Top Cat on for up to 6 more divers.
Sunday will be either a repeat of the Derbent, a dive on the slightly deeper Roan Oak of something else if anyone has special requests.
