SAHRA have approved our request to survey the Clan Stuart wreck for the NAS Part II qualification. This is going to be such an interesting project! We will be mapping the position and outline of the wreck in detail and we’ll create a comprehensive, up to date profile of the condition of the site. Everyone who participated will get the Part II certification from the UK’s Nautical Archaeological Society (NAS).

At the moment the people signed up are Adrian Hamilton, Izak van der Merwe, Rochelle Harwin, Paul Papenfus and Zelda Swart. There is still time for other people to sign up and take part. There is some minimum training required and we will speak to SAHRA about getting the new muggles trained up.

If you are interested in being a part of this please contact Paul Papenfus as soon as possible on We are planning a get-together to draw up a plan of action this coming Thursday the 24th, so if you can join us there, even better.
