Things got significantly worse for the two women - who have since been identified by the Navy as Jennifer Appel and Tasha Fuiava, of Honolulu.
In May, about a month into their trip, treacherous weather conditions caused their engine to lose power, but the pair believed they could still reach Tahiti using their sails.
