This summer, a party of four took a sailboat out on the Lake at about 1:00 am. Once they were a few kilometers from shore, they decided to take a midnight dip. All four of them. Before the boat was anchored.
As soon as the captain hit the water, he realized what they had done. By the time he began furiously swimming toward the boat, it had already drifted 10 meters. His lifeless body was found a week later floating near shore.
Two of the passengers tread water for four hours. Some early morning fisherman rescued them. The Coast Guard located the other passenger. He did not survive.
The boat drifted about eight kilometeres south.
