Around 3 p.m. on Saturday, in the midst of the Three Bridge Fiasco, an unidentified sailboat collided with a tug or its tow just outside the Golden Gate Bridge, sinking the sailboat. The two crewmembers were rescued by the Coast Guard and treated for hypothermia at Station Golden Gate. Eyewitness reports put the tug on an outbound course outside the Gate when the incident occurred. The Coasties are investigating the incident, but confirmed with NorCal Sailing that the sailboat was not involved with the Three Bridge Fiasco.
