That’s Courtney out there (red and green dots) alongside Tom, her kayaker (three green glowsticks).
Courtney’s about 30 minutes into her swim, enjoying her precisely mixed concoction of Perpetuem and Gatorade, which reportedly tastes like a creamsickle. Also included in the feeding is a little mouthwash–to freshen up from that ocean-y taste. Stroke count is steady at 61 strokes/minute.
Already, we’ve encountered flying fish, sea lions, and sea lions leaping out of the water to eat the flying fish. Yum! The water is somewhat calm, but there’s a swell that’s rocking our boat. The captain told us there would be a rough patch at the beginning, but it’s forecasted to calm down a few hours into the swim. Stay tuned.
