Sharks and the rules
After just completing a swim around Koh Tao Island the other day, after two hours I was met with six sharks coming up from the deep blue directly towards me.
You can imagine what was going through my head, the boat stopped and I headed towards the back of the boat and tread water for a few minutes while I watched them underneath me. After about 2 minutes they went away, and for the next few hours all I could see when I was swimming were dark images of sharks. All in my head I know.
So my question is looking at the marathon swimming rules it does not cater for incidents that can be life threatening.
Can I have some clarity on what is the best cause of action, and to be within the rules?
