VIII Scientific exploration
“IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE GREAT WHITE SHARK”
GANSBAAI – «Today at last the first going out with Mike Rutzen’s “Barracuda”. Departure from Saxon Lodge at 6:30 a.m. and then finally to embark at 7.25 a.m. (the start is always bound by the terms of the tides). The sea today was rather “pissed off” and unfortunately, despite the “pills” distributed by Primo, many components of the expedition have paid the consequences.
Fortunately there is always a downside, namely that the sightings were of no fewer than 14 different specimens (2 males and 12 females) and has also been possible to identify different social behaviors.
The group worked to perfection and each one has fulfilled its task with professionalism and dedication. It should emphasize the strong cohesion that has now been established, although many components are new and don’ t know each other. At 6.00 p.m. Mike Rutzen held the first conference of the VIII Expedition.
Next going out is expected tomorrow at about 11.00 a.m. due to the wind and sea conditions.
We recommend you to see (on the Facebook page of Oltrepensiero Redazione and the staff editor’s Tiziana Tiselli one, on Oltrepensiero.it and on the channel of YouTube “Videopensiero” the first slideshow dated April 4th, 2011 made by Daniele Giglioli. We hope to please you and especially to be appreciated by many people as possible.
The rest of the group, in the afternoon, was intent on inspecting the coast below Saxon Lodge and especially to recognize the many biodiversity offering by this wonderful corner of the world.»
