Official observer report:(no moon, very dark)
13.3 nautical miles into the swim. The jellyfish experts have not yet identified the organisms, which have been floating in swarms every 30 seconds* but now are coming every couple of minutes. Diana has been swimming backstroke for the last couple of hours [to avoid the organisms against her face].
*Note: Over the VHF, the vessel “Dancing Girls,” which carries both teams of kayakers and shark divers, warned Voyager at 1:45 a.m., “They’re coming in swarms every 30 seconds.
