In a statement Monday, the survivors said they knew the storm was coming. They had dropped the main sail and clipped on their safety lines.

But their boat was knocked over by a 75-mph gust. The survivors said they unfastened their lines, clung to the overturned hull and signaled for help. Morley and Bickel could not free themselves.
