I am really curious as to why the whales did this? With a second whale taking the line it doesn't seem like an accident. Very curious ... Very interesting.

Of course, boats have been sunk by killer whales attacking them which I found hard to believe also.

Reminds me of a Lassie episode. Maybe they were towing the sailboat to a specific place. (Unlikely, I know.)

The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
