With all due respect that is rubbish.
My boat is 9m and I have parked 10m boats on trailers and anything over tick over and a bit more is utter madness.
I put mine on the trailer this weekend with plenty of wind on a very narrow slip still did it without any drama and at just over tick over.
At 10-20 knts it can all go wrong very quickly as you nearly found out.
I would suggest maybe some slow speed practice with you recovery drills is needed IMHO.
Also you can see from the shock and dismay of the other members here that maybe something is wrong here!
