My Basking Shark Report

By Ffinlo Wright.

On Wednesday the twenty seventh of May 2014, I was sailing at Port Erin and a basking shark came right in to the bay. I think it was young. It was very playful it chased me nearly the whole width of the bay. I could see its dorsal fin rising whilst it chased me.

I was sailing along the bay and the shark was nowhere to be seen and then its fin popped up a hundred feet away from me.

This day was one of the best days of my life!
