HMS Victory, commanded by Admiral Sir John Balchin, was one of the most
technologically advanced ships when she sunk off the coast during a storm near
Plymouth in 1744 with the loss of all crew onboard. The three-decked ship was

Discovered in 2008, the wreck has been almost completely off limits to divers
