2002: Scapa Flow, Orkney Islands

This year saw the club return to Scapa Flow after many years, and for some their first visit to the UK wreck paradise. The intrepid divers joining the MV Sunrise were:

Stew Harper (DO) Steve Thomas Rick Blatchford Simon Parker
Nigel King Jason King Gilles Faure Jon Heley

This year we created an expedition diary which I hope you will enjoy reading; covering all the diving and evening entertainment.
