Whale Of A Time

click for article
... turned a sailboat into a hole in the ocean earlier today.

They were watching it at a distance when it moved towards them.

'Surely, it can't be on a collision course with us'

But the young Southern Right whale slipped out of view before suddenly flipping into the air and smashing their mast.

"There were bits of skin and blubber left behind, and the mast was wrecked. It brought down the rigging too."

Yikes - that would give me fishy nightmares.

Think next time they'll choose a bigger boat? ...
