Not on display
There are three studies here. The lowest shows yachts heading north into the Solent from the River Medina off Cowes, with East Cowes Castle (see under folio 1 verso; D20597) on the skyline to the south-east. The top view may be of the East Cowes headland, while the slightly disjointed profile between may indicate East Cowes and Cowes from the Solent, looking south. For more on studies in this sketchbook relating to the regatta events at Cowes from late July 1827 onwards, see the Introduction.
