Friday's return trip

11 May 2011
Had a great sail back from Picnic Island. Listened in to interesting VHF conversation between the Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation and the US Coast Guard. It seems that somebody knocked down Red #2 marker off Ft Myers Beach and a Coast Guard vessel had the marker in tow. SCCF hailed the CG and asked to put a diver in the water to locate some scientific instruments attached to the piling. At first the CG said they couldn't allow it and would tow it to the CG station but SCCF said they didn't want their $80,000 instrument package dragged across the seafloor and destroyed. CG boat got permission from superiors to allow the diver in but only if they disconnected their tow line first. Happily, the equipment was still there and it sounded like they had a successful recovery.
