If they are anything like the cops or coast guard in Florida, that's probably normal procedure.
Not the sharpest tools in the box

Having witnessed the first one hitting the rocks was it wise for the second and third ones to try and turn inside of him, and closer to the lighthouse?

I am not quite sure on that either, but as you can see there is a fair bit of tide running so perhaps they thought they could get through on the inside?

I suspect it was the wreck of the Varvassi, not rocks, that the yacht hit. The ship sank in 1947 and yachts insist on hitting it on a regular basis.
