A beached sailing vessel in the foreground and many figures at the water's edge, North Pier on the right, and in the middle distance several sailing vessels in rough sea and a lifeboat. Relates to the 'Great Gale' of February 10th 1871. Allerston produced many variations on this scene, basically similar but with differing details e.g. the positioning of the lifeboats.
