June 10th 1940, Italy, which had remained neutral in the World War II till then suddenly decided to declare war on Britain... Red Sea, Sudan, Wingate reef (20 miles from Port Sudan), the Italian vessel Umbria, 153 meters long (500 feet), enshrines a secret cargo. The Royal Navy not suspected how important is the cargo and the Officer Steven approach the Umbria to check. The Captain of the vessel Umbria, Muiesan, decided to scuttle the ship. The precious cargo is still onboard and could never be used again: 360.000 aircraft bombs, ammunition, detonators. The Umbria is a shipwreck, an underwater museum to discover. At Sha'ab Rumi reef, no far form Wingate reef, the face to face with sharks is guaranteed. Commander Jacques Yves Cousteau build Precontinente II (CONSHELF TWO, continental shelf station two), an underwater station, but this is another tale...
