In a message published on Facebook on June 17, Hamish said he was “proud” to be going on the expedition. “The team on the sub has a couple of legendary explorers, some of which have done over 30 dives to the RMS Titanic since the 1980s,” he continued, “including PH Nargeolet.”
On Facebook, Harding posted before of the Titanic expedition that the voyage was “likely to be the first and only manned mission to the Titanic in 2023” due to weather.
