1,000 Sharks?

It's hard to even imagine over 1,000 sharks being spotted at the same time off the beaches of Florida. According to the news, it's part of their annual migration south. Luckily (I think), they are all being spotted off the East Coast of Southern Florida, as opposed to the Gulf Coast where I'll be paddling in a month during the WaterTribe Everglades Challenge. Wonder where they'll all go once they get down to Miami? Hopefully, far away from Key Largo.

Next November, I'm planning to join a Georgia Coast Expedition, wouldn't you know I also just read a story about a 13 foot Great White Shark washed up South of Charleston SC.

This weekend, no worries. I'll be back at the lake, getting in some distance work.

Looks interesting. Is there an advantage going with a guided group?

I've decided to go with the group (despite the cost which will be a BD gift to myself) because I know and really like Nigel Law, I'm tired of paddling solo all the time, and would like to meet some others with similar skills. It's not often you find a group trip that is at a higher skill level. Michael, come along.

I wonder if you would write a race report of the FEC for a new racing magazine we're putting together. Since you've paddled this event before, you make the perfect "reporter" for the new publication. Interested? If so, let me know and we can exchange more detailed information via e-mail.
