My previous posts have explained how Whitby has played host to a vessel chartered by Clive in his search to locate the final resting place of the ill fated Bonhomme Richard lost off Flamborough Head.
This years search has now been completed and whilst there has been some interesting finds the remains of the target are proving as elusive as ever. The team has covered a vast swathe of seabed looking for the wreck site without much success and one can only wonder if it is fated to remain unfound? The team have packed up and gone on to new ventures and I look forward as ever to seeing them return next year.
I hold Clive and Dirk as close companions and always look forward to the search beginning each year and a reunion with Clive and or Dirk. Dirk has been in charge of the expeditions for a while now and we have shared a number of meetings. However, this year Clive was able to get over to the UK, shortly after the culmination of the dogged trial.
I was really pleased to meet up with him and was more surprised that it was by chance that I spotted him in town as opposed to our previous meetings on the charter vessel. Both Clive and Dirk are gentlemen and I enjoy being part of a team even if my involvement is only a very small part.

Thank you, Whitby, for the info on the BHR Search and of both Cussler gentlemen's involvement in the annual search for the famed ship of yore. w: p:
Thanks, Colin! Here's to next year! beer:
At least we know the ship's not cheating in its game of hide-and-seek like some people do by leaving their hiding spot to go to a spot the seeker already checked. That's sneaky! :lol:

I played hide-and-seek with someone who did that. We played for hours until I realized that I was trying to find my shadow! lol. cop:
