Acts 27
10 saying, “Men, I perceive that this voyage will end with disaster and much loss, not only of the cargo and ship, but also our lives.”

My father had a good thought yesterday regarding this warning. When the ship was about to wreck they remembered Paul’s warning and took him more seriously as a prophet the second time he gave them advice. I assume God new the sailors would ignore Paul the first time.

Acts 27
13 When the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their desire, putting out to sea, they sailed close by Crete. 14 But not long after, a tempestuous head wind arose, called [b]Euroclydon. 15 So when the ship was caught, and could not head into the wind, we let her [c]drive. 16 And running under the shelter of an island called [d]Clauda, we secured the skiff with difficulty. 17 When they had taken it on board, they used cables to undergird the ship; and fearing lest they should run aground on the [e]Syrtis Sands, they struck sail and so were driven. 18 And because we were exceedingly tempest-tossed, the next day they lightened the ship. 19 On the third day we threw the ship’s tackle overboard with our own hands. 20 Now when neither sun nor stars appeared for many days, and no small tempest beat on us, all hope that we would be saved was finally given up.

I am not a sailor. Most of this I am having to look up.
It sounds like the wind immediately ruined the course of the boat. The heavy wind kept them from going in the direction they wanted to which is what pushed them farther out to sea.
In the end they tossed almost everything overboard trying to make the ship light including the tackle, which is apparently rope and gear needed to run the ship.

Our scripture today ends by the author stating the weather had been overcast for many days. Without stars and the sun the sailors could not get their bearing. Being lost at see they gave up hope of being rescued.

So Paul’s warning was very correct.
