This story makes us happy. That uncaring people have so polluted the ocean that incidents like this likely happen thousands of times makes us sad. Don’t tell Dolt 45 – he’ll side with the nets and ban turtles from entering the oceans….
On July 10, Vic-Maui International Yacht Race competitor OxoMoxo saw a sea turtle entangled in a ghost fishing net, took down the spinnaker, stopped the boat mid-ocean over 900 miles North-North-East of Hawaii, freed the turtle from the net, and removed the net from the water so it could not continue ‘fishing’.
Congratulations from Vic-Maui to skipper Doug Frazer and the crew of OxoMoxo, a Swan 39 sailboat from the Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle. Read the full story.
