And suddenly they appeared: Orcas! It was a group of 11 animals, all females, juveniles and a newborn whose patch behind the eye was still completely yellow. They jumped and swam close to our boat for a long time.
There is no end to the amount of interest, and we receive many enquiries from journalists and documentary filmmakers. They would love to know why the Orcas bump into sailboats. All scientists worldwide would like to know as well.
David stood on top of the boat, on the small platform that is even above the fly deck, in order to have an excellent overall view. For the windier it is, the more difficult it gets to spot the animals in the whitecaps.
