MOTOR BOAT RESCUES RACING YACHT'S CREW.
Launch Beats Life Savers Craft Stranded on Reef In Lake Michigan
and Bears Men to Safety, ( By Associated Press --- Special. )
Charlevoix, Mich., July 24. -- The crew of the racing yacht VENCEDOR, which went ashore on Charlevoix reef last night during a gale, were rescued by the motor boat ARAPAHOE of Chicago and brought to this port.
The ARAPAHOE was bound for a Georgian Bay cruise and was only quarter of a mile away when the VENCEDOR struck. The JUANITA, which was disputing fifth position in the Mackinac race with the VENCEDOR, immediately put into Charlevoix and sent lifesavers to the rescue. They arrived, however, after the ARAPAHOE had taken off the crew.
An effort will be made today to pull the yacht off the reef. ---
