Five people were rescued in two separate incidents on Lake Michigan during the annual Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac early Sunday morning. All four were successfully rescued and did not suffer any major injuries, but only two of the four were wearing life jackets.

According to the U.S. Coast Guard, one person was rescued by a good Samaritan after falling overboard during the race shortly after midnight about 40 miles east of Port Washington, Wisconsin.

They called for help from a Coast Guard cutter that was stationed nearby for the race, along with a helicopter crew that shined a spotlight as another small Coast Guard boat ferried the capsized crew members to the cutter, authorities said. People are urged to stay off rocks, jetties and piers.

The 333-mile (540-kilometer) yacht race starts off Chicago and ends in Lake Huron off Mackinac Island, Michigan.
