San Marco Xpedition SARDINIA 2003 AQUATICA TEAM Villasimius 3rd October - 11th October 2003 Here is the new Xpedition under planning for the Aquatica Team. We will come back into the warm and crystalline water of Sardinia, which welcomed us last year. The expedition goal is the wreck of a freighter situated at a depth of 105 m. Its supposed name is San Marco, property of Garibaldi SA, a navigation cooperative. We plan a systematic exploration of the wreck, with underwater camera and video. The planned bottom time is between 16 to 22 minutes. We will create a documentary showing the expedition results, in the form of a video. Moreover, we will continue the exploration of the freighter Bengasi, at depth 95 m, which has not delivered all its secrets. Additionally, if the weather is OK, the divers with the pre-required experience, could dive on an unknown wreck at 130 m depth, discovered during a previous expedition. The accompanying partners could dive on wrecks and walls, between 10 to 65 m depth. Remember it is needed to have a technical deep air or Dive Master card to go to 40 m and a Trimix normoxic card to exceed 50 m. Pre requisites needed for the expedition divers: - Trimix OC/CC advanced certification with at least 10 dives deeper than 80 m after the course. - Medical certificate confirming your condition to dive Trimix (or medical certificate of a hyperbaric physician), within the last six months. - Personal insurance covering dives with mixed gas. Note: each member must have all documents required the first day of the expedition, otherwise cannot participate to the expedition (no refund considered). There are three categories of participants: - Diver using open circuit: 1 090 €‚ (mixes include- TX 12/55 - TX 25/25 - EAN 50 - O2 for the deco, for 5 dives). - Diver using closed circuit: 890 €‚ (filling included for the bailout, bottom Trimix, oxygen and air tanks, for 5 dives). - Non-member, diver or no-diver: 570 €‚ (without the cost of the dives). These prices include: - 7 days/nights in full board, drinks included, at the hotel Fiore di Maggio, in a twin room with bathroom, - 5 Trimix dives (boat & appropriate mixes included), - personalized clothes (a jacket, a polo, a cardigan, a T-shirt, a cap, - trousers, list later confirmed). The cost of each extra dive is 35/45 €‚, depending on the trip and the gas cost is 16 €‚ per m3 of helium and 7 €‚ per m3 of oxygen. Each extra day in full board costs 65 €‚. It is possible to rent the diving material if pre-booked by mail. The hotel "Fiore di Maggio" and the diving club are on the web site: www.prodive.it ; www.fioredimaggio.com and www.xpeditionteam.com heading Sardinia 2002. Note, there are only 14 places. The interested people have to send quickly an e-mail. A pre inscription form will be send by return e-mail. I am at your disposal for further information. Look forward to seeing you on the Xpedition, Aldo

webmaster, , 17 October 2002


I wondered if you might be able to let your website readers know about the following Time Team documentary: an underwater excavation. > > October 28th, 9pm, Channel 4 > "The Wreck of the Colossus: A Time Team Documentary". > > In 1798, HMS Colossus was wrecked off Samson on the Isles of Scilly. Part of Nelson's fleet returning from the Battle of the Nile, she struck rocks and sank, lying undiscvered until the 1970s. In the 70s local diver Roland Morris found part of the wreck, along with thousands of fragments of Etruscan pottery. The ship had been carrying Sir William Hamilton's priceless collection of antiquities. Last year, local diver Todd Stevens located another part of the wreck - hundreds of metres away from the first site. He unearthed an enormous and elaborate stern carving: one of the rarest and best preserved in the world. This year Time Team returned to the Scillies to watch the excavation and raising of the carving from the sea bed, and to plot a high tech 3 D survey of the debris trail of canon, copper spikes and small finds, between the 2 wreck sites. Shedding new light on the wrecking process of wooden ships, and with footage of the remarkable carving, and underwater activities in ! > the Scillies, the documentary re-tells the story of the Colossus, and how she came to rest in the Scilly Isles. > > A must-see for all divers!
