NZ sailors swerve whale in Volvo race

Sailors for Team New Zealand narrowly avoid trouble in the Atlantic Ocean during the Volvo Ocean Race when quick reactions from helmsman Roberto De Castro ensure they avoid a collision with a whale.

Helmsman Roberto Bermudez admits it was "really good luck" his Camper team avoided the whale, adding the impact of a collision with such a large mammal would be "better not to think about".
