Yes: It is an odd situation and there are many questions that need to be answered. My biggest question is: "Why did they turn to port and towards the island?"
It had to be human or mechanical error. There is no reason they would turn west and head into the island. They would have turned west earlier or just went between the island and the coast.
Perhaps the Captain did some last minute manuevering that put them between the rocks but it is a place they never should have been. The Captain was trying to make the dock but made the problem worse.
Only time will tell.
