Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - A sail boat found itself in a bit of sticky situation in the Duluth Canal Wednesday evening.

Amateur video shows the Wind Song Two got stuck next to harbor side of the Aerial Lift Bridge around 6:30, during the weekly sailboat races on Lake Superior.

The bridge operator says the strong current pulled the boat in closer to the bridge. It even got stuck for a period of time.

Two boats came to its aid and were able to help get it out as a crowd of onlookers watched from the pier.

The boat was able to make it under the bridge on a second attempt.
