Final Report Of The Two Sierra Leone Expeditions
Final Report Of The Two Sierra Leone Expeditions This report is the result of two expeditions to a wreck who sunk off of Banana Islands, Sierra Leone, West Africa. During both of the Explorers Club Flag expeditions to the site, divers were able to locate remaining cannons, anchors, porcelain,and other artifacts. Some of these have been analyzed, which in turn has allowed the team to determine the approximate time frame when the vessel sank – this being the first half of the eighteenth century. It was also determined that this was a vessel of the Dutch East India Company, in short VOC (Dutch: Vereenigde Oost-Indiche Compagnie). The query in Dutcharchives and collaboration with Dutch researcher, contributed to the identification of the shipwreck as that of the Diemermeer, which sunk in 1747. Download the Report

Gallipoli 2011 Expedition Report
The First Polish Diving Expedition Gallipoli 2011 took place between August 31st and September 9th. Its main topic was “the current status of the wrecks of the ships sunk during the Battle of the Dardanelles and the current state of their degradation.” The members of the expedition were eleven experienced wreck divers, underwater photographers and vi- deographers, as well as a historian and an assistant professor in the Department of Turkish Studies at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Dr. Piotr Nykiel, author of the book Wyprawa do Złotego Rogu. Działania wojenne w Dardanelach i na Morzu Egejskim (sierpień 1914 – marzec 1915)1. The diving team’s task was to accurately catalogue, photograph, and film each of the wrecks, while Dr. Piotr Nykiel evaluated the collected material as an expert in military history. After each dive, the team discussed what they noticed, and gathered their observations as input to this report. Dr. Piotr Nykiel then assessed the significance of our discoveries. Download the Report
