This week Chris F has been diving the wreck with Dawn from St Albans, UK. On Tuesday, Dawn let slip that she had completed her 500th dive, so we thought we would find out a bit more about her diving exploits, and in particular what she thinks of the Zenobia.
Dawn is an accomplished Tec Trimix diver, and has been exploring the Zenobia’s technical routes over the last few days, however her first ever dive was a complete accident. On a sailing holiday in Greece 10 years ago, a day without wind resulted in a pool try dive. When she ventured out into the open water, rather than seeing lots of fish Dawn remembers being fascinated by all the bubbles!
It was then to cooler climes for her Advanced OW course in Scapa Flow; an odd choice you may think, however Dawn loves the Orkney Isles and found that the good visibility led to a passion for wreck diving. Dawn did her PADI Tech 40, 45 and 50 courses 4 years ago, completing her 50m dive at the National Diving Centre in Chepstow.
Although we couldn’t persuade Dawn to pick her favourite dive, she certainly enjoys wreck diving, naming Scapa Flow, Truk Lagoon and the Red Sea as some of her most memorable. And lucky for us, the Zen has made it into her top three.
