I had the same thing with my yamaha 115hp v4. Narrowed it down to dampness in the coils.

I took them off, kept them in the house for a day, sprayed wd40 in the caps and worked perfectly straight away!

If it cranked but did not fire at all after so recently running then 99% it will be ignition related...

Kill cord switch or wiring would be a prime suspect for me, if you can't replicate the problem, it might be worth carrying a jumper that will enable you bypass the kill switch if it happens again.
