Racehorse, HM Sloop Racehorse come to my mind

as we pass the September equinox here, we have already had our first gale and another is imminent.

H M Sloop Racehorse (detail)

I’m reminded of the voyage of HMS Racehorse in particular the September and October storms she endured, eventually making he way to a safe port.

This painting is a detail from https://www.frickers.co.uk/…/the…/hms-racehorse/ “Nelson & Racehorse“.

Nelson’s Arctic Voyage

was one of the formative events in Nelson’s life.
