Off-Topic: Shades of Moby Dick

Stories are told from time to time and then retold and retold about whales attacking sailboats. Some of them sound fanciful and are third and fourth hand.

Here is a current account of what appears to be a genuine attack by whales or whales on a sailboat yesterday off the Baja California coast. The boat sank in a matter of minutes but no one was seriously injured.

This is the first verifiable whale attack that we have heard about off the Mexican coast in 11 years of sailing here. Sphere: Related Content
