Overview

Julie Tanaka lives on a sailboat in the Caribbean with her husband Hideo. He is away, delivering a sailboat to California and her daughter Meiko is visiting during a break in her college education. They are playing in their dinghy, zooming as fast as they can off the western coast of Trinidad, when they discover a body floating in the water. They hurry back to the marina, only to find the police waiting. However they are not there for the dead man, instead they inform Julie that her husband has been killed along with two known drug smugglers when the boat he was delivering blew up off the California coast.

Before the women get a chance to digest this tragic information, DEA agent Bill Broxton shows up at their boat wanting to question Julie about her Japanese American husband. Julie is furious, sends him away. The police come back, then an attorney representing TYS, Trinidad Yacht Services shows up with papers that say the women have to leave the boat, as it's been confiscated because of debts owed the shipyard. Julie knows the papers are false, so she and Meiko sneak the boat out of the country.

TYS is owned by German crooks who are in cahoots with the Salizar drug cartel. One of the ways they get their illegal goods into the United States is by hiding them on expensive yachts bound for Florida, but with Hideo dead and his wife and daughter not knowing about the drugs and having fled, they have no choice but to send a crew after them to try and get their cocaine back. However, they have an ace in the hole, because Julie and Meiko have taken Victor Drake aboard to help them get the boat away. Victor works for the Salizars, but he wants Meiko, so he does his best to sabatoge the boat.

Broxton teams up with T-Bone Powers, a likable pirate, but a drug smuggler himself, and they go after the women to try and save the damsels in distress before the drug smugglers catch them.

Meanwhile as the smugglers close on the women, Hurricane Darlene is speeding her way across the Atlantic. Bad guys behind, a hurricane in front, a saboteur on board and our heroines not very experienced sailors, but they learn fast as the skies darken and their options run out.
