An emergency crew responded to the call of two sailboats in distress with broken masts Sunday morning on Okanagan Lake.
The Kelowna Fire Department sent out a Marine Rescue boat and assisted crafts on separate occasions—at 10:30 amd 1:15 p.m.
In both cases, emergency personnel helped removed people from the boats and transported them to safety, while the boats were towed to shore.
Winds as high as 43 km/h and choppy waters have made for challenging sailing conditions today on the lake.
No other details are available at this time.
