Orcas attack again a sailing boat near the Portuguese Coast

The Unidade de Controlo Costeiro (UCC),  Subdestacamento de Controlo Costeiro de Sines, rescued two men, both 70 years old, from a runaway sailboat, near Cabo de Sines.
The 12-meter-long sailboat made a distress call via maritime VHF radio communications, being about three nautical miles away from land, equivalent to 5.5 kilometers. Immediately the military of the Guard went to the place with the Speedboat for Surveillance and Interception, where they found that the vessel had been rammed by two orcas that broke the rudder, thus leaving the vessel adrift and without maneuverability.
The two crew members were in good health, with no injuries, and the sailboat was towed by the GNR patrol to the Port of Recreio de Sines.
