Possibly all a publicity stunt for the Jules Verne round-the-world race? Giant squid attacks boat - smh.com.au


Veteran yachtsman Oliver de Kersauson, at the helm of the trimaran Geronimo, said the boat was hit by strange vibrations on Sunday, so he sent a crew member below deck to try to identify what was wrong.

"Suddenly he saw something moving," de Kersauson said. "It was tentacles."


I'd like to think I know how I'd react if my ship were attacked by a giant squid in the middle of the ocean, but I really just can't imagine. But I know what Richard Van Pham would do; he'd make soup.
