A South African couple have had the fright of their lives when a Southern Right Whale jumped onto the deck of their boat. Sailing instructor Ralph Mothes and his partner Paloma Werner of Cape town Sailing Academy were sailing the yacht "Intrepid" off the coast of Cape Town when they spotted the whale breaching out of the water some distance away. Suddenly it got close to them, leaped out of the water and crashed onto their yacht.
