1998: Isles of Scilly (English Channel)

A liveaboard to be proud of.. the MV Maureen of Dart.

MV Maureen of Dart Although her accomodation does not reflect the likes of some found in hotter climes, she has an excellent crew and the most wonderful hot meals. This trip was arranged by Stew Harper with only three members of the club joining friends of club members for a diving week from Dartmouth to the Isles of Scilly. The club members included:
Stew Harper Rick Blatchford Simon Parker

Deck of the Maureen Maureen in docks
Everyone onboard was looking forward to diving the Cita, some had dived this wreck previously but there were others for who it would be their maiden dive on her... and what dives they were to prove to be!!
Anyone with photos of the Cita please email them to the site.
