Location: Dimitrios, Bay, Island of Syros
Weather: a gentle breeze from the north (stronger than a light breeze), with pleasant weather and (still) beautiful clear skies. Feels like 16.6 C.
It is a beautiful day in the Greek Islands as a soldier, Polythemos, comes to take you to the wreck as requested. He is alone, without the support of others, and quite gregarious in his attitude. This tends to put the party at ease, as he seems to be a person without any special agenda, without intending to rush the party or in anyway act in a threatening manner.
He takes the party about one and a half miles north of the town of Syros to the bay at Dimitrios, a very small bay below a tiny village, most noted for a small Greek church:
|Please ignore the small modern feature.|
There is no grand operation that is presently salvaging anything ~ but there is a contingent of guards that are posted in tents at the edge of the brush that dominates the point, as shown in the picture. A palisade has been built from the Church down to the water, on either side of the point.
You're led out to the end of the point, where a small boat will help you skip from the shore out to one of the rocks, a mere ten-foot distance. There, the water is about 20 feet deep and crystal clear all the way down to the bottom, which you can see. There is a ship right there, completely submerged, the top of the forecastle a mere four feet below the surface.
It does appear, as far as your memory serves, to be the Petrel.
