 LAKE OF THE OZARKS, MO (KCTV) - Two men are recovering after a high-speed crash during a boat race at Lake of the Ozarks.

The Missouri Highway Patrol said the accident happened about 10:34 a.m. Saturday on the 34 mile mark of the main channel during the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout.

Troopers say the drivers, Joel Begin, 47, of Valley Field, Quebec, and Michael Fiore, 44, of Bristol, RI, lost control of their catamaran at high speeds due to wind interference.

The 42-foot Outerlimits catamaran then went airborne, overturning twice before re-entering the water bow first. It then came to a rest end-over-end on the water.
