Shipwrecks 2006

March 26, 2006 @ 21:52 By: gordon Category: Diving

I took Friday off work and drove to Welland so that I could go to Shipwrecks 2006, which started at 0900 Saturday morning. The event was basically a series of presentations on various shipwrecks in the Great Lakes (primarily) and their histories. There were also a couple of presentations on recording techniques and expeditions to discover other new wrecks. Several dive clubs and similar organizations, including Save Ontario Shipwrecks, had information booths set up outside the auditorium.

This is the first time I’ve gone to Shipwrecks and I have to say I was extremely impressed. The speakers were experts in their field and many of them had well-produced videos as part of their presentations.

After the show on Saturday, I hopped in my Tracker and returned to Ottawa, making a round trip of 1230 km in 36 hours.
