A seascape, with a small sailing boat in the centre-right foreground, with full white sails leaning over to the right. Several figures are in the boat, one is leaning over the side to the left. There is a squally sea beneath a rainy sky, and two birds and a piece of driftwood amongst the waves in the foreground to the left. A large sailing boat is on the distant horizon.
