Re: Dolphin rescue

Last month some fellow sailors participated in the recue of a gray whale off Dana Point. After dropping some lighted floats in the net Pete (boat owner) and Gary (all bundled up on foredeck) stood by and babysat the whale all night until rescue effort resumed in the morning. If you watch the video there is only a short scene of their boat "Aloha Kate" as they were relieved in the morning. They said the whale tried to stay near them as much as they were trying to stay close to him.
