This black and white photograph features a group of five yachts out on the open water. The sails of the yachts all feature a star near the top . The sail on the yacht second from left has the number 1248 below the star and the sail on the yacht third from left has the number 423 below the star. A typed label on the back of the photograph describes the history of yachting along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The lable also describes the photograph as being the "International Star class in a close huddle on the Guilf Side of the Biloxi Peninsula."
