Report: Boats Tip in High Winds on Potomac
About a dozen people had to be plucked from the frigid water near Hanes Point as high winds toppled a boat full of rowers from Georgetown University about 11:30 a.m.
Eight more rowers were rescued earlier in the day when a boat capsized near Thompson's Boat Center. All of the rescued rowers in both incidents were in good condition according to the NBC article.
Winds were sustained at 15-25 mph much of the day, with gusts between 30-40 mph throughout the area. A Small Craft Advisory had been issued for the Potomac waters yesterday and remains in effect through 10 p.m. tonight.
It will be much less windy tomorrow. For the full forecast, see my post from earlier today.
