A squadron of Dutch war ships sail before the wind on a rough sea. The yacht sails directly at the ship in the middle of the canvas; a collision seems almost inevitable. As the vessels are small, the scene must take place near the coast. The low-lying horizon means that a large part of the composition is made up of the cloudy skies, which are blown apart by the hard wind.
