The combination of the mad sea and all that sail is hopeless, but I still love it. ‘Lord Belfast’s yacht Emily off the Mediterranean coast with a xebec off her port bow’, painted in the early 19th century by John Lynn.

And here she is hove-to. She’s waiting for her owner apparently. Well you wouldn’t get me in a boat in sea like that, except by accident!
