Catalogue entry

The four bands of sketches were made with the page turned vertically, showing various busy juxtapositions of yachts under sail off shore and figures coming in rowing boats. For more on studies in this sketchbook relating to the regatta events at Cowes from late July 1827 onwards, see the Introduction.
