Whales alongside Namani!

Wow - an unusual view this morning: shortly after sunrise we had a pod of 4-5 whales (type to be determined, each one approx the length of our boat) swimming approx. 20m off Namani's beam before crossing our bow and disappearing into the distance. Quite an awesome sight - if a bit close for comfort though... With a good 24 hr run behind us and approx. 625 nm to go we're still hoping for 12DEC arrival - stay tuned...


How magical! What an amazing sight that would have been. I remember how excited we were when I spotted that one whale back in the Med! Have managed to finally send a comment. Am back in Australia - so China must be blocking my access to the blog. Keep on enjoying this adventure and hopefully you might head south to the Great Pacific waters!!
