    Although from a different age, this one reminded me of The Cromwell which we saw down at Gloucester Docks last month.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    "Land i sikte" means "Land in sight" and is used as Land ohoy!

    Nice one Jonas, and thanks for adding to the beers. We are getting a bit thin on finding new ones.

    If you fancy trying the Scarlet Macaw ale, which appeared a few days ago, Rob, I saw some in my local ASDA store yesterday. So, if you have an ASDA near you, they may have some. i have not tried any myself.

    Several Royal Navy ships have been named H.M.S. Nonsuch. One of the most famous dates from the 17th century. Built in 1668, this 53-foot ketch was built and launched in Gravesend, England. The Nonsuch was commissioned to undertake a trans-Atlantic voyage bound for Hudson Bay, Canada. The reason for this particular voyage was to prove that a fur-trade industry, proposed by Radisson & Groseilleurs, from North America would be more efficient and adventurous through Hudson Bay than through the current set up of transporting fur from the established St. Lawrence River Route.
    It took the Nonsuch 118 days to complete the journey across the Atlantic and anchored off the mouth of the ‘Rupert’ (christened ‘Rupert’ by the crew after Prince Rupert who had backed the expedition) on 29th September.
    With the fur and prime beaver pelts back in England the demand was so great for beaver felt hats that the backers of the expedition approached King Charles II and explained how lucrative this opportunity could be, and demanded a charter to be established. This gave birth to the Hudson’s Bay Company.
    In 1970, a replica Nonsuch was built to celebrate its 300th anniversary by the Hudson’s Bay company, the main reason for this is because the original expedition opened up the entire west coast of Canada to trade to England. The replica can now be found in Manitoba Museum in the Nonsuch Gallery.

    "Land i sikte" is Swedish for "Land in sight" which is the standard phrase for "Land ohoy".

    Didn't use that one for my Johan Puke campaign.
