When we asked for a welcome party in Miami, this isn't quite what we had in mind....
10,000 sharks have migrated to the Florida coastline!
According to Stephen Kajira, a professor at Florida Atlantic University, the sharks are very attune to temperature, following a precise band of water between 21 and 24 degrees centigrade. Fortunately, he predicts they will disperse around April, not returning in these numbers again until next January, a month after we have finished our expedition.
More details can be found here.
Meanwhile we will be doing our best to get our hands on a shark shield from these guys!
Back at home, training is still going well; we are four weeks in and getting used to our early morning gym routine and progressive training programme. Although we are still not too happy about getting up in the dark when it is -2 and snowing! More information coming soon.
