Escorted wreck tour with Mike Ward and Bagpuss - MY Hurricane (Feb 11).

Members of SSAC joined MY Hurricane at Sharm El Sheikh in the days immediately following the recent Egyptian revolution to indulge in a week of fabulous wreck diving. We made the most of this quiet time and were the only boat at all of the dive sites. Mirror calm seas, great wrecks and a pleasant 23C water temperature made a welcome change from the cold chill of the UK winter and diver training in quarries.
