It's called coming from a poor fishing village in Mexice where compass or GPS is a no used nav. tool. They probarly fished in the same waters there whole life and lost there direction in the storm.
I once overheated my engine and had to anchor up for a few minutes to adress the problem, and as I come up from the cabin the tide has swung the boat 180 and I get back on my way and it took me 10 minutes before I realize I'm going in the wrong direction. In good wheather.
Maybe it was something bad in my beer...
