One of the great pleasures in Luganville is to dive on the wreck of the SS President Coolidge. This is a wreck with a narrative that can be found repeated in history as it involves human stupidity from those in charge that results in the sinking of this ship which is 16m shorter than the Titanic.
In short, the Captain, rather than waiting for the pilot to guide the ship through the port which had mines positioned in strategic locations, steams ahead and hits not one but two mines.
However such stupidity and tragedy creates opportunities for better things to occur in time. Like sharing some brief time with a turtle.
