My visit to the Hermina Wreck

September 20, 2009

Richard Hughes and his Diving Club  http://www.reddragondivers.org.uk invited me out to the wreck of the Hermina on Saturday 19th September at the lowest tide for the year.

After writing about the Hermina, I saw for the the first time the engine block that had been there for 89 years [1920].

It was above the water and in the exact position indicated in the book [page 26 – Hermina – the morning after]

We were joined by Mike and Jackie Williamson who were moored nearby and used their tender to ferry me around the engine. http://www.wordaid.co.uk/
