The scuttling of the German fleet took place at the Royal Navy‘s base at Scapa Flow, in Scotland, after the First World War. The High Seas Fleet was interned there under the terms of the Armistice whilst negotiations took place over the fate of the ships. Fearing that all of the ships would be seized and divided amongst the allied powers, the German commander, Admiral Ludwig von Reuter, decided to scuttle the fleet.
The scuttling was carried out on 21 June 1919. Intervening British guard ships were able to beach a number of the ships, but 52 of the 74 interned vessels sank. Many of the wrecks were salvaged over the next two decades and were towed away for scrapping. Those that remain are popular diving sites. Marc and I dived this fabulous dive site in July this year and both enjoyed so much I have decided to organize a trip for 2020 please see email below from Emily our skipper on the fabulous HUSKYAN.
Lovely to have you on the boat this week. We have noted your interest in the week diving 2nd – 7th August 2020.
We will keep you posted should anyone else enquire about this week but our charters are sold on a first come first serve basis. That is, first to pay their deposit gets the week.
As discussed we would be happy to take the deposit in two instalments. If you go for the 6 day charter package this would be as follows:
£1800 now to secure the week during 2018
£1656 in January 2019 to secure the full charter
So we need 12 divers and to secure the charter we need to pay £150 pp now then £138 pp in January 2019, this will charter the boat then of course we have travel and accommodation which is very reasonable I think. If you interested email me firstname.lastname@example.org asap and I will send you more details. We have to move very fast on this one as Huskyan charter is very popular.
