This morning marked the official start of the race with one turtle being released at Clearwater Beach in St David’s. After having her GPS attached to her shell, “Fripper”made her way down Clearwater Beach and entered the water to begin her race while dozens of spectators watched.
The next three months will see the participating turtles compete with each other to see which one travels the greatest distance. People can log on to the event website to follow along during the race and cheer on their favorite “competitor.”
