    What is WRECKFEST?

    Wreckfest is an annual 'not for profit' event conceived and hosted by Chris Brown of Silent World Dive Center in Key Largo Florida. It is a celebration of wreck and technical diving that showcases the Wrecks of the Florida Keys such as the Queen of Nassau, The Northern Light, Whistle Buoy Wreck, The Vitric and others.

    Now in its third year, this prestigious event has been Sponsored by GUE, TDI in the past and will see Rebreather World and Advanced Diver Magazine coming on board in 2009. VIP guests have included Richie Kohler, Jarrod Jablonski and Tom Mount, all of which have given entertaining and informative presentations on their diving achievements during the evening events.

    The event has seen some of the busiest diving schedules of any technical diving event held anywhere in the world and has also provided training on wreck diving, technical diving and closed circuit rebreathers as well as hosting evening presentations from guest speakers. This year will see both of Silent Worlds Island Hopper boats dedicated to running out to the wrecks all day, every day during the event. Their will be plenty of wrecks to choose from that will cater to all levels of diver from wreckreational to technical.

    Any profits will be donated to the Artificial Reef Foundation, to help pay off the debt from the sinking of the Spiegel Grove. For those who don't know the history behind the sinking - when the Spiegel Grove project got into financial difficulties after being ripped off by an unscrupulous contractor, local Key Largo dive shops took out a million dollar loan against their shops to get the vessel sunk. A medallion program was instigated to repay the debt where divers voluntarily purchase an annual $10 medallion to dive the Spiegel, Duane, Bibb and Eagle. These medallions are now collectors items, with a different color being produced each year and can be purchased from the Chamber of Commerce, many dive shops and other retail outlets in Key Largo.

    Participants of Wreckfest will be asked to purchase a medallion if they do not have the 2009 version.

    Details of this years event can be found at Silent World: Wreckfest

    I thought WreckFest was a group of SB ladies getting together.
