    Two sailboats in one day had to be towed by Salvamento due to killer whale attacks

    On Monday Maritime Rescue has towed the sailboat ‘Eva’, after its four crew members reported having suffered an attack from killer whales a mile and a half west of Cape Camarinal, near the beach of Bolonia, and its rudder was disabled. That brings to two the total number of sailboats assisted by Rescue on the same day by an encounter with these mammals.

    As reported by Maritime Rescue sources, it was the same salvage vessel that participated in the first rescue, the ‘Enif’, which has towed the sailboat to the port of Barbate, where they have arrived at about 2.25 am this morning. The alert had been issued around midnight.

    Earlier in the afternoon, another sailboat reported an encounter with killer whales eleven miles southwest of Atlanterra, in the municipality of Tarifa, and the ‘Enif’ travelled to rescue it and tow it to Barbate.

    In a first call, this sailboat warned of an interaction with killer whales, although they clarified that they did not require assistance. Subsequently, the sailboat alerted of an incident with killer whales requesting assistance because the rudder was not working properly.
