After reading all the sailing threads and talking to some of my sailing friends, the most logical scenario is that the owner was behind the wheel, went to relieve himself over the side and fell overboard. The other 3 were below sleeping, the engine was running so they wouldn't have heard him calling for help. It would also explain why they didn't find his body.
He changed the course around 10:00 and used the island as a waypoint. At first, I thought that wasn't a very smart thing, but then I remembered that I always chose something specific, like the L.A. lighthouse, when I was out there. It would make sense that he would use that as a marker so that he could change course there and start sailing.
It's also possible that his GPS could be off by a few hundred feet and he was aiming just to the east of it. That is a really small island, less than a mile long and what would be a couple of blocks wide.
