Scapa Flow 7-14th September 2002



Despite the dire predictions of minibus fires on the way back a group of rational Sunstar members managed to exorcise the smouldering memory of the last trip. We had been looking forward to this trip for a very long time as the Sunrise had to be booked way ahead. We had a few Scapa veterans but most of the crew were virgins making their first pilgrimage to the very far north. It was a great group and somewhere in these snaps you should be able to spot Andrew, Susie, Raj, Barry, Mike, Simon, Mark, Craig, John, Frances, Dawn (who had a birthday on board) and me (I celebrated my 300th dive). Many thanks to Andrew for doing the hard work to set it all up. The best way to view is to click on the first thumbnail and then click on next preview to progress though them.
