An Expedition Too Far? – The Quest For HMS Victoria – Part Two

HMS Victoria, will the expedition ever get of the ground?

It has been some weeks since my last post on the HMS Victoria expedition.

I have been in Malta, the resting place of the HMS Victoria and Cambertown prior to their ill fated voyage that would see the HMS Victoria sink beneath the sea just outside of Tripoli, Lebanon.

I could not help but think how such a decorated Admiral could make such a fatal mistake that would lead to the loss of not only his own life but that of his crew and vessel.

The lack of communication has been intentional, there is a great deal to get my head around, many aspects that need to be addressed to make sure that the expedition has a fighting chance to ahead and also I always worry that people will be tired of me talking about the HMS Victoria and how it makes me feel like a kid in a sweety shop.

I spent a great week in Malta with Alan from Techwise, our aim was to review the training schedule and get to grips with the logistics that will be required to make it a successful expedition.

Scary! Is the first though that leapt into my mind. The amount of logistical preparation is enormous; never mind the challenges that the additional training will throw at the expedition and expedition members. Add to that the honor of dealing with the gentile folk at the embassy and I foresee a good deal of stress in my future.

Mind you, having said all of that, the excitement still far out ways the impending stress. Even now I am still buzzing at the prospect of diving HMS Victoria and being part of a fantastic one in a lifetime expedition.

The additional training no longer seems so daunting after observing a number of 100-meter dives that took place while I was in Malta. The key messages that I took away from observing the dives is that preparation, skills, more skills and most importantly having a support team that is capable and well organized are paramount.

So the quest continues, the Lebanese embassy in the UK and dive centers in Lebanon have been contacted. The expedition team is starting to take shape and I will hopefully be picking a few brains in the weeks to come. I do know that local expertise will be essential if the expedition is going to be a success.

My juices are still flowing and the thirst to get to this wreck increases with each day.

Ready To Dive With Seals?

We have been asked buy the Pirate diving club to pop out a quick mail to see if anyone is interested in diving the Farnes.

29th September – 1st October

The Farne Islands are a favourite NE dive spot off Seahouses, Northumbria, famous for the playful and inquisitive seals, diving sea birds, numerous wrecks (nearly all very broken up due to the exposed situation), abundant diverse marine life, and strong currents for excellent drift dives. Many of the 26 volcanic islets rise sheer from the seabed, and there are spectacular walls (typically on the south sides of the islands) and gullies as well as wreckage to explore.

  1. Costs are £40 per day per person for a days diving (2-3 boat/shore dives) ( 3days x £40= £120) Obviously you don’t have to stay around for Monday if you don’t want to.
  2. There is parking for large vehicles close to the tie off point of the boat to help with transfer of kit
  3. You are able to leave all kit on the boat overnight, I have been assured this is very common and very safe, thus you don’t have to worry about moving it on and off etc.
  4. They will Fill all cylinders ready for the following day on site after each days diving.

To book a place please call Chris Forester at DiveStyle or drop a mail to info@divestyle.co.uk with the subject line of ‘Farnes Diving’.
