This distinctive red and black yacht, flying a red pendant, crops up a lot in Sorby's watercolours. It closely matches the description of Sorby's own yacht, the Glimpse, on which he was most probably standing whilst painting the picture. He could have used his imagination to put the Glimpse in view.
