Scapa – August 2012

Week diving Scapa Flow, Orkney

5th – 10th August 2012

Another trip to Scapa Flow located within the Orkney Islands, off the northeast coast of Scotland.  For details of the history and wrecks see our 2008 report or the Scapa Flow Historic Wreck web site.  We dived from the Sharon Rose with Scapa Flow Charters – our skipper was Kevin

The week had some eventful moments (!) but although the sun didn’t shine as much as we would have liked, it stayed fairly dry and, more importantly, the winds were light so the sea was calm – with one notable exception.

This year we had more cars and some non-diving partners so more sightseeing took place.  As usual there was the enjoyable social aspect (food, beer, chat) which is always an integral part of any BUDC holiday.

Our thanks to Paul, who arranged the trip and Jacqui who was in charge during the week.  A week of good diving enjoyed by all who were able to go.
