Dive dates: 21-23.7 2011
Water: 0m-36m +4c - +12c
Rig: 2x12, EANx, 3L 02, dry suit

Annual trip to Åland. Met friends, dived two new (to me) wrecks and attracted seals using the secret call in the night. Too tired to party but the others sure enjoyed "Made in Thailand" and the other traditional attractions.

I will happily recommed to all divers interested in baltic wrecks.

Next year... S/S Hindenburg!

Panga Diving resort was our host for the long weekend. Nice guides.

Five good dives, a little too much wind so not too many seals, only one wreck, Stag, a nice russian minesweeper.
