BAREG recce trip to the Byron D Benson. May 25th to the 26th.
We successfully made our first overnight trip to the Byron D Benson off the coast of Kitty Hawk N.C. The BAREG group was doing a recce for their continued work on the sinking’s off the U.S. coast by the famous U-Boat commander Erich Topp. The groups were able to get some measurements and identify some key parts of the ship for further mapping later this summer. The project is an ongoing venture between NOAA, BAREG and ECU. Grand Adventure was truly happy to be a part of this amazing study and would like to wish the team luck for this summers continued study.
