Winds force sailboat on Reservoir rocks

Posted: Updated:
MADISON COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A sailboat was no match for strong thunderstorms Monday.

Four teenagers were sailing when high winds drove the vessel into the rocks on the Madison County side of the Spillway.

All four managed to scramble off of the sailboat as the wind pounded it against the rocks.

Barring some minor scrapes and bruises, no one was injured.

A Sea Tow boat pulled the sailboat off the rocks and back to the Yacht Club.
