The Alex Project

vanop20001Our current club project is to investigate and map this often dived wreck in Weymouth Bay. Largely overlooked by divers heading round the Bill to Lyme bay and the big intact wrecks there, this 6000 ton steamship is often relegated to the status of a backup dive.

She has the honour of being recorded as one of the first casualties of the second world war, being sunk just two weeks after the start of hostilies on 15th September 1939.
