Several trips from SF to Monterey (and back?) in a 22' Catalina???

An experienced couple just died sailing a 33' Ranger from Half Moon bay to SF (1/3 the distance), in unpredicted 30-40 plus Knot winds! The boat survived (fully reefed).
I think that couple you referring too is in this article. The video that plays shows the boat...
