Well it didn’t take the Japanese whalers long to find the Ady Gil and sink her. Hard to see this as anything but deliberate – it was Sea Shepherd’s fastest vessel – capable of outrunning the Japanese fleet to get between the harpoon vessels and the whales. Maybe the Japanese are conducting “research” on how to sink small fast trimarans. It had only been in the SS fleet since October last year…

Hopefully this just garners support for the anti-whaling movement.
