Whale Jumping on Boat in South Africa photos and youtube video here.
On Sunday, a juvenile, 40-tonne right whale breached next to a 10-metre yacht sailing near Blouberg, off Cape Horn, South Africa. The animal struck the yacht, breaking the mast, before sliding back into the sea, reportedly leaving blubber and skin on the deck of the boat.
A quote from the couple as shown in the Telegraph article, “Miss Werner said:” It was really quite amazing, very scary. The whale was about the same size as the boat. ”
“We had seen about 100 yards away and thought that was the end of it. Then suddenly it was right next to us.
“I figured that was underneath the boat, but emerged from the sea. We were lucky to get through him, because the sheer weight of the thing was huge.
“There were pieces of skin and fat left behind, and the mast was wrecked. It also sets out the gear.
“Thanks to God became the center of steel and fiberglass or could not have been ruined.”
