Whale 1, yacht 0

Exactly why whales  breach and then slam back down onto the water is not specifically known. Some claim it is a form of communication while others say that the force of hitting the water is a way of getting rid of excess dead skin and barnacles.

Whale watchers may well think that whales breach for their own beautiful photographic moments of magic but really sometimes a whale just wants to smash up a yacht.
