How it might have happened. A Swedish sailing cargo ship rounds the Start in a fresh NE breeze heading for Stronsay and Sanday to pick up barrels of herring for the Baltic market. Unfortunately as it clears the Start the wind veers into the SE and increases to a full gale. She is then unable to wear the point of Tresness and founders on Ba Gruna a shoal on the East side of Tresness. Spars and deck cargo are washed ashore on Sanday to be followed shortly by large sections of the vessel. Okay I made all that up but the painting might well be what it looked like on that night.
