    One person has died and another has been hospitalized after their small boat capsized on a windy afternoon in the San Francisco Bay.

    Southern Marin Fire District Battalion Chief Matt Barnes said rescue crews pulled the two people, a man and a woman in their 40s, from Richardson Bay off the coast of Sausalito on Monday afternoon.

    Both were transported to a hospital where the man was declared dead.

    Barnes said neither was wearing a life jacket.

    Barnes said they appeared to be riding in a small skiff or rowboat that overturned but it was unclear how they ended up in the water and obtaining information was difficult due to their injuries.

    A wind advisory was in effect Monday with winds of up to 30 mph in the Bay.
