Gaskin - Brockville..
It's always good to round off any day with a decent dive. Today's was the Club's Wednesday night charter - this week with Tom Scott's Under Where Dive Charters out of Brockville. The destination was the Robert Gaskin - a schooner sunk in 1889. She lies reasonably close to shore in just 62' of water. Still highly recognisable as a major vessel, she offers access to her holds and good swim-alongs on the deck and sides - particularly the lee side down current. Nine members of the Club made the trip, many of them fairly new to diving. Everyone had a good dive.
Water temperature - 63F (17C) and visibility somewhere around 40' - despite heavy levels of drifting particulates.
