The canvas of dimensions 15 x 30 x 1.5 inches (38.1 x 76.2 x 3.8 cm) ready for hanging was made with a spatula and acrylic.

The horizontal format canvas evokes a marine scene in which three skiffs take part in a regatta at sunset. The skiffs are typical Martinique boats. A rectangular sail is strung on a vertical mast which is placed in an opening of the boat. A second rod resting on the mast and held in place by a rope keeps the sail unfurled. The boat having no keel, the precarious balance of the boat is ensured by an agile and fast crew who must move on the return rods to counterbalance the force of the wind.
