Murph...you need 10 posts before you can PM and provide links. You're almost there!

Square Waves in sailing simply refer to the short, steep and uncomfortable waves that form in shallow waters especially where tide opposes the wind.
This happens in the Delaware and makes 20 knots of winds against the tidal flow much less comfortable than being at sea in the same conditions.
