The wind stayed strong today. We got another sighting of dolphins and as Mark and Jeff looked at the water they also saw strange small jellyfish. Jeff managed to pull one up in a bucket. It was black and tried to climb out of bucket with its tentacles. Jeff tried to lift the tentacle back into the bucket but it gave him a funny tingle, sort of like an electric shock. (Pity it didn't raise his hair!) We released the jellyfish back into the ocean.
That night it was pitch black and the boat sailed steadily at 6 knots. We were looking at the rear rudder and were surprised to see all the jellyfish giving off a green glow! We think this is related to the electric shock Jeff felt before. Mark plans to look into these jellyfish once he is back on land. Wonder when that will be!
