Three English ships in stays
Three English ships in stays. On the left, a lee bow view of a small ship close-hauled on the port tack under fore course, mizzen, topsails and main topgallant; the luff of her foresail lifting. On the right, a starboard broadside view of a ship with her fore topsail aback and her main topsail and mizzen filled on the port tack. Another ship also aback is in the centre middle-distance.
