Hmmm hitting the Gulf Stream 40 knots wind against current wouldn't do it, you think?
Guess where this photo is taken. Notice the wave is breaking onto, from above, a full size ship. Not a 130 foot Wooden sailboat. Remember 3 were washed overboard in one wave. Only one got to the liferaft. Must have been a good wave.
