Two sailors vanished in the San Francisco Bay with their boat Daisy after racing in the Golden Gate Yacht Club Charity Race.

Authorities realized there was a San Francisco boat accident after the other three-dozen boats competing in the race returned to the San Francisco port.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, boat debris and the body of one of the missing sailors was pulled out of the water at Moss Beach, while the other sailor remains missing.
