At this year’s Race for the Conch Eco-SeaSwim in the crystal-clear waters of Grace Bay in Turks & Caicos, two turn buoys mysteriously disappeared.

The buoys were anchored on the race course the day before, but on race day, the buoys were gone and nowhere to be found. Where could they be? Where did they go?

We had great water conditions in Grace Bay at the July 5th event and some superb swimming in 1/2 mile, 1 mile, and 2.4 mile races,” says Ben Stubenberg. But the mystery continues.
