Dozens rescued after high winds flip sailboats in Potomac and Severn rivers - Washington Post

It was not clear how many of those involved in the race in the Severn were rescued and taken aboard other vessels, as opposed to those who might have returned to shore after righting their Lasers by themselves or with help. As many as 25 sailboat racers and recreational sailors were rescued Sunday from Washington region waterways as a sudden and fierce cold front swept through, with winds that gusted as high as 54 mph. No injuries were reported in the sailboat incidents, which occurred in the Potomac River near the Wilson Bridge, and in the Severn River in the Annapolis area. As many as 22 people were pulled from the Severn — where, according to the Severn Sailing Association, a Frostbite racing event was underway, involving Laser sailboats. Source: www.washingtonpost.com
