Recreational diving has a deep and rich history that is firmly entrenched with shipwrecks. Before the days of side scan sonar or multibeam sonar finding a wreck took some ingenuity and grit. Original SECONN members would ride along with local fishermen and draggers with the hopes of finding new numbers. When nets became entangled or snagged upon the bottom, divers would sink beneath the surface hoping to not only freeing the gear, but also find a new wreck to come back and dive upon.
Join us for a one-day event featuring presentations and displays from local wrecks, explorations, and more. Speakers will include Bill Campbell, Captain Bill Palmer, Mark Munro, Bob Foster, John Stanford, and friends. Hosted in Groton, Connecticut on the University of Connecticut’s Avery Point campus; for more information please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
