Description:



The U.S. Coast Guard pulled 12 people from rough water Saturday before organizers called off the Water Tribe Everglades Challenge small-craft regatta. According to the Coast Guard, 135 boats with more than 240 people were participating in the regatta, which started in Tampa Bay and was scheduled to end in Key Largo. The event was called off at a check point at the Cape Haze Marina in Englewood after numerous boats capsized. The Coast Guard said late Saturday all participants had made it safely out of the water.
