I started my day with three phone interviews with Forbes, Business Insider and Vice followed by my weekly call with Dr. Montel, my psychologist.
I jumped in the water a little later than usual and I got stopped before even starting. Brian and Maks, on the dinghy, noticed that the propeller was acting odd, it was not turning like it used to. From the water, I gave it a quick check and I noticed that the propeller set off its axis.
They radioed the sailboat crew to come back to pick us up.
The engine was removed from the dinghy and the propeller disassembled on deck. Its pin had broken off in five different pieces and was loose.
After the pin was replaced, the engine was mounted back on the dinghy and we started the day of swimming.
By then, only half day of swimming was left, but every miles count so I made the best out of it.
