The painting depicts a little-seen aspect of life on board a racing yacht mid-ocean, with waterproof 'oilies' hung over the guard rail and improvised washing lines to dry out after a particularly wet spell. The calm sea is visible through and above the guard rail; sailing boots are strewn about the deck. Lines are neatly coiled on the working winches.
