Yukon Reef's 10th Anniversary - Underwater Press Conference July 15th, 2010
Probably the first ever of its kind: an underwater press conference held completely on SCUBA using wireless communications devices, filmed, photographed, observed, and involving the placement of a ceremonial timecapsule. All in honor of 10 years of the the "reefing" of the HMCS Yukon.
See vimeo.com/12937717 "HMSC Yukon Honor Wall" for more information about this amazing wreck.
The following will be added to the video soon. Until then...
