In an ironic twist, however, just as the weather was clearing and Triple Stars was finally, once again, heading toward Bermuda, disaster struck. "On that last day, the 11th, is when Tropical Storm Sean had already gone by," said Rob Anderson. "We never had a lot of wind that whole night before, but some fairly high seas, which is something that we've dealt with before on the Pacific side of Mexico. That morning [Friday, November 11], the sun finally broke, and it was time to head to Bermuda. I was down below doing some work that morning. I came up around 1 o'clock, and Jan was at the helm. All of a sudden, she says, 'Look out!' Next thing you know, we're knocked down by a rogue wave. It happened that fast. I was thrown into the bimini framing and took that out, and she was taken overboard. I did spot her in the water, put out the Lifesling, circled around her like they tell you to do. She grabbed on to the line, and she was about halfway between the boat and the collar on the end of it, and I was swinging back around to get to her and she went down. That was the last I saw of her."
