Two yachters sailing off the South African coast were stunned when a 40-ton whale leaped out of the water, slammed onto their deck and crushed their steel mast like a twig. This incredible picture is before the whale slammed into their sailboat….wanna see the boat afterwards?
The New York Post reports, the Skipper Ralph Mothes, 59, and his girlfriend, Paloma Werner, 50, dived for cover as the whale — who seemed as frightened of them as they were of him — brought down the rigging before it flailed its way back into the water. “It was quite incredible but very scary,” Werner said. “Miraculously, nothing happened to us.”
The couple, both veteran sailors, were enjoying a pleasant Sunday afternoon on their yacht, Intrepid — whose sail fittingly bears the logo of “The Saint,” the adventurous hero of a 1960s TV show.
What’s the CRAZIEST thing you ever saw out on the water?
