    they made for the beach

    From BBC - WW2 People's War - D-Day Memories

    The next thing we heard was the anchor dropping and they called the first wave forward which was all the French Canadians and we waved them off. As each one was loaded it went out and started going round in a circle and as each one was loaded they all formed a big circle, when all the first wave was on board they made for the beach.

    What does 'made for the beach' mean?
