Another great day for swimming, little wind, waves were rolling in the right direction, and the water was warm.
Ty and Mark were in the RHIB pacing me, it was an uneventful morning until I heard Ty scream “Ben, Ben shark!” I swam toward the RHIB, Ty was pointing in the direction toward my right saying “it is there about 20 meters away!” I looked but couldn’t see anything. Mark was trying to capture it on camera. We were all looking for it. And then in the waves, I saw the fin for a split second. I stayed in the water and looked under the water for a few more seconds and then I put a shark repellent bracelet on my ankle and resume swimming. This was our only encounter of the day.
I took advantage of the conditions to push over my hours a day.
Since the water was warm, at the end of the day I decided to remove my wetsuit, rinsed it and rinsed myself at the same time.
