The Racine County Sheriff’s Department water patrol rescued two people and a dog after the boat they were in had run aground and was taking in water near Wind Point, according to a press release by the Racine County Sheriff’s Department.

A 39-year-old Oak Creek woman was sailing a 33-foot sailboat at 3:55 p.m. Sunday when the boat got stuck. The woman told deputies that she was not “familiar with the area and didn’t realize the water was that shallow.”

The couple didn’t know where the water was coming in from, but they made a number of attempts to get the boat free. The passenger, a 45-year-old man, told police that a considerable amount of water had come into the boat and the pump could not get the water out fast enough.

The Sheriff’s patrol took the couple to Reef Point Marina on their boat. No one was injured. A tow boat salvaged the sailboat.
