Oct - A Clean Pair of Keels

by TexaS on 02-23-2017 at 12:38
Johan Puke looked at the coast of the island Ösel, Livland or rather Russia. Having crossed the western entrance to Rigabukten, HMS Venus sailed northeast close to the northwest corner of the large island. These were enemy waters, rich of prey on their way to the important natural harbour Riga, but that also meant a heavy presence of enemy naval ships. Johan raised his glass to his eye and studied the horizon of the sea, searching for ships. It surprised him when the lookout shouted "Skepp

AAR Après la tempête, Action of 20 march 1798, off Diamond Point

by TexaS on 04-28-2016 at 14:46
The small British squadron, consisting of HMS Victory, HMS Superb and HMS Indefatigable, led by Admiral Croft, had been blown off station by hard weather, but the squadron had had time to prepare with hatch covers secured and top-gallant masts taken down on deck well before the high winds struck. As the winds had lessened considerately, the squadron, almost untouched, returned to their station against the wind, tack upon tack, with their masts restored.

He stepped out into the morning breeze and joined his first lieutenant Christopher Brandon on the quarterdeck. He handed him a glass as he

AAR: Duty and Daring - Danger and Determination

by TexaS on 03-30-2015 at 03:25


Captain Frederick Wentworth had been lucky. He had managed to take Océan, a 120 gun, first rate ship of the line with his heavy frigate HMS Indefatigable. Sure, the battery he took with the extra detachment marines did lend him a most valuable hand, and the leeward shore had made the enemy vessels maneuvering very limited, but he had done it. He had done the impossible.

But now his luck had changed.

AAR: Our ships were British oak, and hearts of oak our men - and nerves of iron.

by TexaS on 03-18-2015 at 08:03

The squadron

The signal "All captains come aboard" had been hoisted from the mizzen mast of the first rate ship of the line, HMS Queen Charlotte and a course of action had been decided and delegated. It was followed by a dinner that had reached the desserts. Commodore Croft, the host of the evening, turned to Harrington.
- "Your capture did save us a lot of trouble, Harrington! Now we have an idea of what the french is up
