A number of vessels are shown moving briskly through the waves in a strong breeze. The boat on the left is probably a kaag, designed for use on inland waterways, with the leeboard visible. It flies the Dutch flag and one group of figures sits in the stern and another in the bow, including a figure dressed in red. Kaags were often used as ferries in the Zuider Zee, conveying cargo and people to and from seagoing ships.
