‘It broke the rudder!’: orcas damage Spanish naval yacht

Maritime authorities in Spain have asked sailors off the coast of Galicia to give orcas a wide berth after a naval yacht lost part of its rudder following a brush with two of the whales. The encounter took place on Sunday in the Rías Baixas area of north-west Spain. Footage from the Mirfak – a Spanish naval yacht en route to a regatta – shows the animals swimming alongside and underneath the boat before the sailors realise the rudder has been damaged
