Rope and monofilament net recovered from Falmouth Wreck

Tuesday 6th April 2021 - Despite the far from ideal conditions and temperatures normally seen in the middle of winter, five of us set out retrieving ghost nets from a wreck site in Falmouth bay. With several of the team having booked leave from work and this being the first trip after the recent lockdown, there wasn’t going to be much that would stop us getting to work.

After two dives in the strengthening cold wind, rain and occasional hail, we returned with a dumpy bag of assorted rope. monofilament net, trawl net and other debris. Another successful outing on our RHIB Casper!
