But to me the question is why was it so close to shore? Yes the wind and waves drove it there - but why was it not sailing?

My assumption is that the main halyard was fouled judging by the big black something at near the top of the mast.

Could you make way from a lee shore on a ketch with just the jib and mizzen?
