A digital painting, using Gruppe in DAP, of MARYPORT PIER in Cumberland. Original out of copyright black and white image from project Gutenburg.
The coast of Cumberland is at all times of the year rough and inhospitable to the sailor; but at the equinoxes, especially the autumnal one, its dangers are more imminent; and the trading vessels in the Solway Frith and Irish Channel, are exposed to serious risk. Owing to the numerous shoals and sand-banks lying at various points, the navigation is at all times intricate; and even to those best acquainted with its peculiarities, the passage from Ireland is frequently attended with greater hazard than many longer voyages.

    wow nicely done

  • A pretty hairy homecoming :)
    It was like this when I first arrived in Gibraltar and had to enter the harbour (narrow entrance) in a force 9.
    It was so rough that I even gave up sailing (8 years later:)
