The Ship That Went No Further

The Ship That Went No Further
Theres a ship and it gets into distress 10 miles from shore and CANNOT GO ANY FURTHER. Nobody on board is a very good swimmer and there are no life-boats on the ship. The entire crew of 5 people makes it safely to shore BY the end of the next day without being rescued or assisted by anyone else. There are no bridges, pipes, or any man made structures connecting the boat to the shore. There are no islands between the ship and the shore.

How did the crew do it???

Thank you Zack for your submission!
