    "Nantucket Sleighride" is a term used by Nantucket whalers to describe what occurs immediately following the harpooning of a whale. “The whale, realizing it had been harpooned, would attempt to flee and thus drag the whale boat along with it. The speed of the “sleigh ride” would vary depending on the size of the whale, with larger whales giving faster rides. (this is an excerpt from the book “You Wouldn’t Want to Sail on a 19th-Century Whaling Ship.”
