At dusk, a thunderstorm threatens to break in a cloud-filled sky. On the left, a small sprit-rigged vessel, crammed with fishermen, bobs gently in the water. Her sprit-sail is half lowered as she runs before the wind. This vessel flies the Dutch flag and serves as an introduction to the composition. Next to it, three men pull a heavily laden rowing boat through the water towards her. They are huddled against the stiff breeze with the waves high around them.
