Photo Medcup Media

In Alicante sixteen TP52 are racing for the first stage of the Audi Medcup 2008, one of them, the german "Platoon" has had a very uncommon encounter on the first day of regattas: a big shark!

What's more is that comparing the size of the shark with the TP 52 length it seems that the shark should be around 7 - 7,5 meters. Considering that the biggest White Shark ever found, captured in Malta, measured 7,10 meters and that the biggest shark specie, the Whale Shark, could reach the 12 meters, the unidentified shark in the picture was a real beast.

    I would be freaking out! once i saw this video of this high school that was on a field trip to the ocean in two big boats. they were really far out and one of the boats were too full so some people had some people swim to the other boat and as they were swimming to the other boat
    a shark came up and attacked one of the people (a girl). The people on the boats saw the shark fin before it attacked and told the people that were swimming to swim faster. a couple of people were in the water when the shark attacked. one of the students were taping the whole thing. The girl luckly didnt die. the people who sent the people to swim to the other boat should get in trouble big time!!!

    I started to learn how to sail when I was around 7, and I haven't ceased yet.I recollect when I was in a sunfish,a little,single-pole sailboat,with my brother surprisingly.I likewise recollect when he gave me the tiller, and said, "Simply attempt to make sense of how this works, and let me know whether I ought to pull in the sail or let it out."It makes me effective,that I utilize nature to move crosswise over water.As time proceeded onward,I started to love sailing for the investigation of how it works.When I started to learn how a sailboat uses wind and its sails to move it,I dove into a deeper piece of sailing.
