This video was in much the same wind strength but the sea state is very different.
Sorry its not very good quality there is to much wind-borne spray to risk a good camera, but its only short.
The wind was coming off the shore during the peak and my boat was only about 300-400 yards from shore. In the peak of the storm I estimate the waves at my boat to have increased from 0" to 1.5 + feet in a matter of about 1 minute.. That is a pretty good chop for 300-400 yards in that short of a duration....
