Whales

For those who think hitting whales is a very remote possibility here is a report of the second incident in NZ in a year. The guy was travelling down the coast in his 9.5m tri before doing a solo trans tasman race when he had to be rescued after hitting a whale or vv.
Less common is the dolphin getting overexcited and jumping over a boat seriously injuring the woman on the bow and demolishing the screen, a couple of weeks ago.
