Re: Racing yacht's near-miss with large whale captured on video

I have sailed near -- but not too near -- whales. There is a much higher probability of contact with these racing machines moving along silently at 20+ knots. I like to think that at the slower speeds at which I sail each of the whale and I will have a bit more time to react to each other.
