Off the north-west coast of Bermuda is the Constellation, a four-masted schooner built in 1918.

She wrecked on the reef in 1942 carrying a 2,000 ton cargo en-route from New York to Venezuela.

It was in fact this wreck which provided the inspiration for Peter Benchley’s story The Deep, as amongst her cargo the Constellation carried thousands of drug ampules and many broken glass vials and bottles which I used to find on dives, in only 30ft of water. Within only 50 yards of the Constellation is another wreck; English paddle wheel steamer and civil war blockade runner the Montana, which sunk in 1863.
