On its third voyage it landed in the sand dunes. Thanks to Ms. Boland who was visiting the Cape who helped to recover it and bring it back to Audubon for redeployment. Also thanks to NH State Trooper Lazos for this efforts as well! The local community is helping out a lot with this research project and we are very grateful.
The Riptide was released for a 5th time in Mass Bay on November 23. Thanks to beachwalker Bud Walcoulder it has been safely recovered.
Another short trip to shore for the Riptide occurred on 11/27/2019. Thanks to Natalie for moving the boat to safety while it awaits recovery.
This miniboat is being deployed multiple times in an effort to gather information about winds and currents in Massachusetts Bay to correlate with sea turtle strandings. To see all of the assets being deployed, visit the map here.
