Looks like they stopped for a cuppa

That looks just like the swimmers got to home base, someone managed to shoot one past the goalie, your gonna need a bigger boat in about three quarters of a year...

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

North Minerva Reef
Ifs a lot bigger than your expectations
The entrance is over 150m of navigatable water
It’s a strange feeling being surrounded by ocean swell and anchored in flat water.

Of note to anyone going there is that the light is well away from the entrance, we circumnavigated it one dark night (radar) awaiting daylight.
