On the left is a ship, in starboard-broadside view, running before the storm in a heavy sea. Her main and mizzen yards are lowered and the fore course is clewed up on a half-lowered yard but not furled, leaving a little bit of sail. Her fore topmast has been struck and she seems to have lost her bowsprit, and the forestay has been cut away. She has Dutch pennants at the fore and the mizzen although the staff for a flag at the main is bare.
