Funny, that was my first thought too. Like you say, not the biggest wave in the world, it just broke under them, dropped the starboard side and lifted the portside - hoopla!

I almost got beached once with my old six meter in what were very benign conditions - I've never forgotten the power behind even the smallest waves...

As a rule of thumb if you are hit broad sides by a breaking wave higher than the beam of your boat it will turn you turtle.

Do you mean brakes?

Isn't it some thing like a wave half the beam of the boat can capsize you when laid beam to sea.
