Yes Sos. I have never experienced that kind of motion except as you describe wind over tide and then not as severe as that... I just put it there to enquire if this is a 'normal' motion in modest conditions. In looking at his sail configuration and shape, I cant quite describe it but it seems a little loose...?

Re: Heavenly Twins?

That hobby horsing has all the earmarks of the consequences of a powerboat wake. Look how it get worse, and then, eventually evens out.

I looked hard at the water in the video behind, and its difficult to be sure, however I dont see wake trails... I do agree that it does look like powerboat wake.
I presented it merely for enquiry as to whether or not this was an habitual situation on the HT.
