The Sky as she is known locally was a Greek container vessel weighing 14385 tonnes. After colliding with another vessel in the middle of the English Channel in 1979 she limped, whilst taking on water, to shore but off St Albans Head she finally gave up and sank. The Sky is a very large wreck and although subject of much salvage work is still very recognisable. Lying on her port side the stern and rear accommodation area are relatively intact and stand some 12 metres. There is much evidence of her cargo within the wreck and strewn across the seabed. This is a great dive especially for those new to wreck diving but strong tides and variable visibility make local knowledge essential for a good dive.
A very big wreck needs a few dives to get head around how big it is, a long way out and can be rough. Date posted: 25-Feb-2007 21:52 by: Alan J who thought that:
Only experienced wreck divers should attempt this.
Ranked it as:
This wreck is large, you can easly end up inside it without noticing but in good viz and with a good skipper just can't be beaten. Had 20m viz in August 03, 2m viz in April 04, 8m viz in May 05. At 32m would recomend Sports Diver or Advance Open Water divers do this wreck. Date posted: 23-Feb-2006 23:15 by: ColinH who thought that:
