Update, Feeding Stop
6pm September 1, 2013, Swim Time: 33 Hours

To prepare for the dusk and night hours when jellyfish and other stinging creatures are more prevalent, Diana put on her jellyfish protection suit at her 6 p.m. feeding stop. Because she struggles so much with the protective mask that she wore last night, the team made a decision not to put it on immediately. Instead, the parts of her face that are exposed were slathered with a protective cream, dubbed “Sting Stopper,” that was created by jellyfish expert Angel Yanagihara and the University of Hawaii.

Additionally, a diver will be in the water with Diana at all times to look for box jellies. If any box jellies are detected, the mask will go on immediately.
