Orcas immobilise German yacht in new incident off Portuguese coast

Another ‘orca interaction’ has immobilised a sailing boat in Portuguese waters, this time off the coast of Ericeira. The German boat ended up like many others before it with its rudder damaged so that it had to be towed into port for repairs. Other orca sightings on the same day, including interactions with sailing boats, did not result in any damages (see here) These ‘strange but increasingly commonplace incidents’ are being religious catalogued on ‘orcaiberica.org’.
