Coast Guard rescues 4 during annual boat race
MILWAUKEE (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard says it rescued four people from a capsized boat on Lake Michigan during the annual Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac Island, Michigan.
The Coast Guard says the four were clinging to the vessel’s hull and only two were wearing life jackets when rescued Sunday off the lakeshore community of Fox Point north of Milwaukee. The Coast Guard says the four are in good condition.
WISN-TV says another person was rescued by a citizen after falling overboard in a separate incident Sunday.
The 333-mile (540-kilometer) yacht race starts off Chicago. The first 40 boats finished Sunday and Monday. Winners are determined based on a handicapping system. Organizers say about 80 of the nearly 300 boats in the race withdrew — many due to rough weather.
