In early 1694 some 30 Dutch warships set sail for the Mediterranean. They were sent to protect a merchant fleet from French attacks. In the Straits of Gibraltar they ran into a heavy storm. Various ships sank or were seriously damaged, including the Hollandia, portrayed centre right in the painting.
