NASCAR

Danica Patrick was the first woman to qualify for the pole position at the Daytona 500.  Sunday she finished 8th, the best finish by a woman in a Daytona 500 race.  She was in 3rd position on lap 199 of 200 but she got boxed in on the top of the track as 5 cars passed her on the last lap.  But this is still a tremendous accomplishment.  Jimmie Johnson won and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. placed second.

SAILING

One Coral Reef Sailing crew checked in Sunday.  They will spending the week with the world’s (2nd) most interesting man, Captain Giuseppe Passanisi onboard S/V Silent Harmony.

SCUBA

The Scuba Liveaboard and Scuba Adventure crews were gone by 09:00.  I accompanied the scuba staff as we made a final pass through the scuba dorms and scuba area to make sure everything was secured.   The scuba staff were given the remainder of the day off (their first day off in a week).

WEATHER

Sunday was hot, with gentle breezes and clear skies.  It would have been a perfect scuba day.  Our temperature is forecasted to not vary by more than 4 degrees for the next 18 hours.  (Tough on the air conditioners.)  The wind will start to build again this afternoon.
