On 4th October this year it will be the 10th Anniversary of the sinking as an artificial reef of the Ex HMAS Canberra. Doesn’t time fly by.
There are plans being made by VARS to mark the occasion which will involve a celebratory meal.Details will come out closer to the date.
Myself and JL have both been talking to Luke English at Redboat’s about the event and he has kindly agreed to put on a boat for us so that we can dive her on the day of the anniversary.
The 4th October is a Friday so I wanted to give you plenty of notice so that days off work can be arranged if necessary for those wishing to join us for the dive.
The boat will depart Portsea Pier at 9.00am and Queenscliff at 9.15am. This trip is now up on the Redboat’s website www.Redboats.com.au so that you can book on if you wish to. The boat capacity is 18 but we will put additional dives on if it proves necessary .
