Updated: Apr 21, 2020
Today Tuesday 3 Sept 2019
Day 4: departing 0900 from Carmabi @ Piscadera covering Blue Bay > Boca St. Michiel > Vaersenbaai (aka Kokomo)
Here’s a short Wrap Up Day 3, Monday 2 Sept 2019
PELICAN EXPRESS; OCEAN ENCOUNTERS; GO WEST DIVING, LIVE A LITTLE; KAYAKS; SUP (Stand Up Paddle Board), all platforms & crews and paramedics from EHBO CURAÇAO did a fantastic job! Masha Danki!
After an explanation at the docks by Coral Resoration Foundation (CRF), THE SUIT departed swimming outbound with first stop over the CRF nursery. A true must see to understand what is being accomplished to restore Curaçao's coral reefs. Drop by and talk to the dedicated and professional staff of CRF Curaçao and Ocean Encounters to see for yourself. You can even take simple gear and venture out with your friends and relatives to visit the CRF nursery!
Next ‘stop’ was the harbor entrance at St. Annabaai, mid town. With a tremendous support by Curaçao Ports Authority (CPA) THE SUIT was welcomed and piloted in, passing under Emmabridge for then to wave at spectators, media & sponsors followed by a double left hand turn to exit harbour.
Navigating outbound turning right to cover the megapier area would not have been possible without support on scene by Curaçao Port Authority & the Harbourmaster.
Masha Danki for being part of THE SUIT!
Final stop of the day was at The CARMABI Foundation: ‘the real deal’ when it comes to science based management of our biodiversity. CARMABI's management team; supervisory board; scientists; personnel; other aficionados all interacted with THE SUIT talking science, telling tales & and stories, sharing the passion for our country both on land as well as under water. Creator of THE REEF GAME (HET RIF SPEL) explained about this fantastic board game followed by a round of table top board gaming with students and teachers. Visit The CARMABI Foundation in Piscaderabaai, home to CARMABI Education and the CARMABI Marine Research Station... it is highly recommended!
THE SUIT thanks all involved and will continue the journey towards the West.
