Lindblad the Explorer is no stranger to long voyages. In the past few years, she has traversed the expanse of the Atlantic Ocean, from her preferred nesting beach in Costa Rica to feeding grounds in Canada. Lindblad the Explorer is a fearless trailblazer and has traveled this route before, so she might have an advantage against her less-experienced competitors in the Race.
She is being coached by Olympic champion Amanda Beard, whose love for the ocean and for turtles (not to mention her stellar swimming skills!) should come in handy for Lindblad the Explorer.
