As Faster said, something under the mast went south on you. Start at the mast base and work your way down. Something between the butt of the mast and the keel is undoubtedly broken. Depending on how your compression post is supported, the problem could be hidden under the cabin sole.
Edit: Then again, maybe your mast is just a victim of "cold water shrinkage". It happens to the best of us.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
