Not on display
The four successive drawings here were made with the page turned vertically. They show racing yachts, some of considerable size, manoeuvring among smaller sailing boats and moored boats marking a racing course. The top drawing also includes slight indications of clouds. The brief note, apparently a single word, between the lower two drawings is effectively illegible. For more on studies in this sketchbook relating to the regatta events at Cowes from late July 1827 onwards, see the Introduction.
