Nice Whale Story

August 17th, 2011 No comments

Not really a topic that I would normally post about, but I like creatures of the sea and this is a cool video.¬† Seems this whale got tangled in a fishing net and these guys managed to free it – with the whale providing a nice “Sea World” type experience at the end.

I ran over a whale once on a transatlantic trip on a small sailing trimaran. Thankfully neither the whale nor I was injured, but I think we were both equally shocked by the encounter! They are rather large and solid – I wouldn’t have liked to have hit the whale with a keelboat. Luckily I was running downwind and had my centerboard up so the tri just bounced off the whake who then serviced at the stern and gave me a beady eye look!
