September 2018 Niz and Brian Lyell were both in Cyprus on their annual holidays. Niz had suggested a dive on one of the worlds best wreck dives The MS Zenobia, a Roll on Roll of ferry which sank just outside Larnaka harbour on June 1980 when the computers controlling the ballast went wrong and she rolled over and sank on her port side.
First dive they were taken to the stern where the lorries are lying on the seabed around 40M although a couple of lorries are still chained to the deck.
Then through the roll on ramps to the rudder and prop.
Second dive they were taken through the wheelhouse then up to the bow where the spare anchor can be seen before heading into the canteen. The tartan carpet although now mostly gone can still be seen along with the tray worktop and coffee machines, with another room, a toilet behind.
A great dive which they both highly recommend and thanked Marine Divers of Cyprus.
They were guided by Kevin of Marine Divers.
Now on our third Tuesday evening dive while we have no access to The Royal Commonwealth Pool.
Tonights dive on Stingray skippered by Barry White and site was South Skellies.
From our club we had Dave Simpson, Mo, Roberta, Steve Taylor, Brian Lyell, Graeme Dyer, Douglas McCaffrey and JP. All had a great time with Douglas edging closer towards his sports diver qualification and Brian completeing his 300th dive
Apart from one diver losing a fin in 18M depth off the boat, which thankfully was recovered, all had a safe and enjoyable dive. No underwater pictures but David Gray who couldn’t dive took some aboard Stingray.
Thank you to Roberta for a well organised evenings diving.
