Three GUE expeditions will be held during the month of September as part of a documentation project on the unexplored wrecks related to the Battle of Convoys in the Mediterranean sea.
Expeditions will be based on the island of Lampedusa, Italy,  from which we’ll depart for excursions in the high sea for a duration of 2-3 days each. Excursions will be on board a fishing boat, reaching the routes of Afrika  Korps convoys and the positions of several shipwrecks.

During previous expeditions, GUE divers located more than 30 spectacular wrecks related to this battle. The project aims to document already found positions and locate new ones.
