Catalogue entry

With the page turned vertically, at the top appears to be a single busy sketch of a yacht and a heavily laden rowing boat with moored vessels beyond. Below is a quick sketch looking down into the interior of a smaller rowing boat. For more on studies in this sketchbook relating to the regatta events at Cowes from late July 1827 onwards, see the sketchbook Introduction.
