A Pod of Killer Whales Attacked a Yacht During the International Ocean Race


Three orcas attacked a yacht during an international race, the latest instance of killer whales targeting boats in recent weeks. 

The crew of the Ocean Race's Team JAJO were in the Strait of Gibraltar when they experienced several terrifying moments as a pod of orcas attacked their vessel, according to ESPN. Video footage (which can be seen below) shows the animals circling the Dutch yacht, then ramming into it and biting its rudders. In an attempt to scare them away, the crew banged on the hull of the ship.
