Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Close encounters with whales

We hit a whale about 1000 miles west of Grand canaria. We were under
Gennaker and mizzen ballooner and doing 9-10 knots. When we hit the whale,
one crewmember flew from the saloon table to the starboard "V" berth.

We were stopped instantly. Fortunately no damage to the boat
