CSR_18, September, 12th- 18th


What a week! The excellent weather with flat sea and beautiful sunshine allowed us to spend the whole week out at sea. The participants came from all around the world, including the UK, Germany, USA and Mexico, and helped the Pelagos’ crew to sight many cetaceans, of which Striped dolphins everyday, and lots of other marine life. Our first day was marked by a rare sighting of Cuvier’s beaked whales at sunset, our third of the season! We spent that night at sea, in order to wake up early and continue surveying the pelagic area. Five Sperm whales were sighted over the next few days, three of which were identified as "Tom", "Fede" and "Matt". One of these consisted of an exceptional sighting 7nm from the coast, during which a sperm whale surfaced within a hundred meters of a fin whale!! We were also lucky enough to spend two nights anchored in french bays, the islands of Lérins and the bay of Saint Jean, before finally returning to Sanremo to celebrate an amazing week.
We also had the pleasure of having our sponsor, Breach, on board, and both the researchers and participants had the opportunity to model some of the clothing from the new collection, the pictures of which will appear on the spring-summer catalogue 2012.
