THIS is the surprising second a killer whale circled a yacht and teared off its rudder – leaving its crew adrift in open water.

Daniel claimed the good animals had refined their expertise since then.
He stated: “Seems like they knew precisely what they’re doing, they did not contact anything.
“All of the sudden one massive grownup Orca began chasing us. In a few minutes, she was beneath the boat and that was once we realized there was nonetheless a bit piece of fiberglass left and he or she wished to complete the job. After that we did not see them anymore.’
Following the incident, the crew have been capable of get the boat to a close-by port.
Nonetheless, Daniel needed to fork out £2000 for a brand new rudder.
