A week aboard the Sunrise, diving the scuttled German High Seas Fleet. This was my first experience of a live-aboard and although it looked a little small the boat served us well. With the exception of one failed attempt to drop onto the Taba

UK spots - A lot of spots that aren't well-known, personal favorite being Lundy Island. A lot of scattered sites so requires more finance to get around, but definitely worth it in the summer

position of wreck fylrix - This is shown as being in Bovisand bay but should actually be in Jennycliff bay at position 50 21 0401N and 004 07 31.75 W
O google maps the wreck buoy can be seen just to the west of that position
