Chased by a Whale //Y 42

Our friend Noam Gans and his wife Dalit skippered a 42 foot Cat from the Caribbean to Portugal, arriving at the end of a 3950 mile ourney just a few days ago.  The story is well told at Hitchhikers Guide to the Atlantic.  This video - chased by a whale - was on the last leg, from the Azores to Portugal.  I particularly enjoyed it because I have just finished Stove by a Whale - Owen Chase and the Essex.  That, of course, ended very badly with resort to cannibalism on the skipper's whale boat. - gwc
