Selection of videos about the two lost ships in Kea


https://vimeo.com/206388150As few appetizers, we would like to offer in our first post a small selection of videos about the two great lost ships in Kea waters nearly 100 years ago!

Starting with the lovely trailer of the film Dark Waters under preparation by our friends from the U-Boat Malta Org.

Trailer of the Mystery of Britannic

While at it its nice to listen to the HMHS Britannic’s owner and friend Simon Mills talking about the importance of this notable shipwreck!

Two more videos involving Simon and Evangelos Papatanasiou from the Hellenic Center of Marine Research supported mission of 2008:

And a blast from the past, a short film from the 2006 expedition on the HMHS BRITANNIC 👍

Plus the IANTD Benelux expeditions to Britannic in 2012.

How about a real treat? The film by Jacques-Yves Cousteau & the Calypso team regarding the discovery of HMHS Britannic back in 1975 🙂

For our Greek viewers, here is an interview by Byron Riginos with Peter Nicolaides aboard the R/V Cdt. Fourcault from the ill fated 2009 National Geographic Expedition to the HMHS BRITANNIC.  Peter Nicolaides had taken part in the discovery expedition of the Britannic in 1975 by Jaques-Yves Cousteau. This video is in Greek language. It is highly recommended to read more about this mission here: http://www.richiekohler.com/project-files/national-geographic-britannic-expedition/. In memory for his friend and mentor Carl Spencer who tragically died while exploring Britannic on this expedition.

Last but not least, couple of videos from the discovery of S/S Burdigala in 2009 by a team of amateur [but daring] divers from the KeaDive.gr expeditions.

This one is from the 2012 expedition [with opening titles in German]. From point 9.25 you can see clearly the heavy trawler net which covers a large part of the vessel’s aft section. During the Sept 16th 2016 Event we plan to lift this net which endangers divers and traps many fish from their natural habitat, leading to their unnecessary death.

Plus, a pictorial selection o the great ship S/S Burdigala (ex. S/S Kaiser Friedrich).

Finally, our event’s short video trailer 🙂
