Especially large jellyfish were out in force this morning, with two new species spotted that looked particularly nasty.

Another first for today was a shark sighting! We are unsure of the species, but the crew saw its fin pointing out the water about 30m from the starboard side (luckily opposite to me).

Thankfully, it didn't seem to spot or be interested in me so we kept going and the crew only told me once I was out.


I have developed a cold so the morning's swim was tough going. I am resting as much as I can now before the weekend, which sees me and the crew attending events in my hometown of Plymouth, so we have a jam-packed schedule.

On our way back for our last day in Falmouth now.
