Inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, at the top right is a group of men standing with a telescope, another man sitting, and what seems to be a woman in a large bonnet. They are presumably watching the racing yachts seen on many adjacent pages. Ann Chumbley and Ian Warrell have noted these figures in relation to another group with a telescope on folio 33 recto (D18052);1 see also folio 19 recto (D18024).
With the page turned vertically, at the outer end is a study of yachts in full sail passing moored ships. For more on studies in this sketchbook relating to the regatta events at Cowes from late July 1827 onwards, see the sketchbook Introduction.
