Quick Reference

A sea running in a contrary direction to the wind. When the direction of the wind changes rapidly, such as during tropical storms, the direction of the sea, whipped up by the wind, lasts for some hours after the wind has changed, throwing up a confused and irregular wave pattern which can be dangerous for ships caught in it.
