Shark Details

The shark was feeding in big, slow circles, it came to us and did one circle close to us, then appeared to allow the tide to take it through the Sound. We saw it again an hour later, close to the cliffs on the Calf of Man, east side of the Sound, working its way towards South Harbour.

Environment Details

Virtually no wind, strong flood tide south-going through the Sound (we drifted at 4.7 knots at the fastest point). Quite dense plankton.
