Balanced News: Sailors reach land safely after “maybe 30” sharks nearly sink their boat

Our 'quick read' news summary

Three round-the-world sailors were rescued after their catamaran was nearly sunk by cookiecutter sharks in the Coral Sea. The inflatable hulls of their 30-foot boat were damaged in multiple attacks. The sailors activated an emergency beacon and were rescued by a Panama-flagged freight ship. The catamaran was severely damaged, with one hull missing a front section. The sailors suspect the sharks mistook their boat for a whale. Cookiecutter sharks, not considered dangerous to humans, are known for biting circular holes in their prey. The Coral Sea is home to a large number of sharks.
