|Ventisca surfacing just off Race Point Beach.|
It was a bit of a cooler day offshore as we headed to the shores of Race Point and Head of the Meadow. One of our passengers was quite creative in finding a way to stay warm as she encased herself in her sweatshirt. Just wish she had her hands free to hang on to the rail!

Both Ventisca and Music have very distinctive dorsal fins that allow us to easily identify them as individuals. Ventisca has a great deal of white pigmentation not only on her dorsal fin, but also on her tail stock and flukes. Musica has some white on her dorsal and has a gouge just after of her dorsal fin. This could have been caused by a collision with a boat, possibly the bow of a small vessel.
