Landrail 32m + 2nd dive
Time - 8:45 am - 2:45 pm
This is a two dive day 1st dive on The HMS Landrail at a sea bed depth of 32m and then after a 90min surface interval and some hot pies a dive on the James Fennell or Aerials or Lulworth Banks divers decide
HMS Landrail entered service just after the outbreak of WW1 as a Torpedo Gunboat. After the war she was decomissioned and sold for breaking. In 1921 she was used as a floating target for the Navy and filled with cork. It was hoped that this would keep her afloat longer than usual. Unfortunately this plan didn’t work and she sank to the bottom not long after the first shell was fired. She makes a lovely site and is home to the biggest crabs and lobsters you will see. She sits in a line North to South and in places stands 5 meters off the sea bed
Extra dive cylinders can be hired through Skindeep or Underwater explorers based in the marina.
