Fishing boats in a rough sea
Several sprit-rigged Dutch fishing boats are shown in a strong wind from the left. The boat on the left is in port-broadside view, beating to windward, with several crew in the stern and three others towards the centre. The port leeboard is visible and the sails are at full stretch. A similar boat can be seen in the distance on the right, reaching across the wind on the starboard tack, and other shipping is visible towards the horizon. In the distance the coastline of Holland can be seen both to the right and left.
