Earthrace joins war against Japanese whalers14 Oct 2009
The record-breaking high-tech powerboat Earthrace has taken on a sinister black look to protest Japanese whalers in some of the most dangerous waters in the world later this year.
The 24-metre trimaran powerboat has special paint which deflects radar waves, meaning it can sneak up on Japanese whalers almost unseen in the Southern Ocean...
Quote: "We are going down there to mess with some Japanese who are extremely pissed off. They believe they have got a right to continue taking these whales and we believe they haven't. There will be significant conflict down there."
