Two unidentified people aboard the boat, a 44-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman, both from Courtenay, were hospitalized. The man was in stable condition but the woman died, the Times Colonist in Victoria, British Columbia, reported Tuesday.
The two were found Monday afternoon a distance from one another, between Royston and Union Bay, two communities on the Strait of Georgia, east of Vancouver Island, after a helicopter search, said Darren Morley, a coast guard officer with the Victoria Joint Rescue Coordination Center.
Morley added it was not known what happened to the sailboat, noting the wind was not particularly strong at the time of the incident.
