John Dyer Painting. Racing on the River, Falmouth, Cornwall.

Every Tuesday night in Falmouth the classic gaff-rigged boats set off for their weekly race. John Dyer's painting features these wonderful boats. The painting has a wonderful narrative with topless swimmers & mermaids playing in the harbour surrounded by seals, fishermen and yachts. The gaff-rigged boats sail past Flushing and up the Penryn river. Fabulous colour & fun.
