Location: Sandy Spit, Green Cay
Hello everyone, it’s Rishi.
Today, we spent a lot of time snorkeling to catch turtles. Our method of choice was called “Manta-towing”. It involves getting dragged around by the dinghy to catch turtles. It is more efficient than just swimming around because we can cover a larger area in a shorter period of time. Aditya drew the short straw and had to hold on to the rope closest to the boat. His vision was completely obscured by the bubbles, and he was essentially blinded the entire time. Wil, Edie, and I were towards the rear end of the line, but I was the one who spotted the first turtle of the day. I jumped off of the rope and aggressively started swimming towards it. I signaled to Davis and Lindsey that we had found a turtle, and apparently, they told us to dive and try to catch it. However, in the deluge that had just started, we misunderstood what Lindsey was trying to tell us and thought we had to wait for Davis to catch up. The elusive creature unfortunately made its way to the watery depths of the ocean floor. ALSO, BY THE WAY, SHOUTOUT TO EDIE’S GRANDPARENTS FROM EDIE AND SAMIRA, THEY SAY HI. When we got back to the boat, Margaux, Wil, and I cleaned 🧽 the algae off the boat to reduce drag for our race day tomorrow. While we three were putting in work to help out the team, Katie and a bunch of slackers were diving and doing flips off of the dinghy. For dinner 🍽️ , we went to a tiny island 🏝️ called “Sandy Spit”. It was very small, but it probably had a great personality. The barbecue was quite enjoyable, if I do say so myself. On the way off of the island, Wil tossed his hot dog 🌭 into the ocean, and it disappeared. As we got into the dinghy, it reappeared.
Thanks for tuning in. This was your host, Rishi, and you’re listening to 98.5 KFOX.
