Race officials say the yacht Finistere was taking part in the 70th Bunbury and Return Ocean Race and had six people aboard when it overturned off Mandurah, south of the state capital Perth.

Five of the six people who fell overboard were pulled out of the water, however one of them was confirmed dead.

Two sailors are dead and several others deeply traumatised after a well-known West Australian yacht overturned in windy seas off Mandurah.

Rescue crews were called out in the early hours of Saturday morning after the boat overturned during the Bunbury and Return Ocean Race south of Perth.

Police are still trying to piece together what happened to Finistere, a three-time Sydney-to-Hobart yacht skippered by popular Fremantle yachtsman Ron Thomas, late on Friday.

Followingthe recovery of the sixth crew member's body from the water at 12.30pm AWSTtoday, the search operation has ended.

AMSA advised Fremantle Water Police of the incident and tasked the Western Australia Department of Fire and Emergency Services RAC Rescue helicopter, which was conducting a training flight in the area, to respond shortly after 1am.

A distress signal was sent to AMSA, but subsequent attempts to contact the yacht went unanswered.

Fremantle Water Police, the Mandurah and Rockingham Volunteer Marine Rescue and two yachts from the race, Fourth Dimension and Circa are assisting with the search as well.

One of the yachts from the race has transferred the surviving crew members to shore for medical treatment.

A plane and four helicopters are also scouring a 90-square-nautical-mile area.
