A few years ago, I had a strange encounter with dolphins
(probably, since there are no more whales around Brittany), at night. One of them kept banging in the rudder
, so hard that I had to hold the tiller with both hands, to prevent the shock from tacking the boat. At the same time, another one placed itself on our windward side and blowed spray on us. I don't know if it was an attack or just playing with us.
A similar incident occured this week, but in daylight: I heard a yachtsman calling Corsen MRCC on VHF
and explaining that dolphins
were following his boat and banging into it, even after he gybed to change course.
