The crew of a racing yacht had a narrow escape when they almost hit a whale at full speed!

They had to swerve at the last second to avoid smashing into the mammal.

The New Zealand team were competing in the Volvo Ocean race when it all happened.

The race takes competitors across the Atlantic Ocean from America to Portugal.
