    First broadsides are exchanged with dire results for Artesien.
    Its almost over before it has begun.
    Just the proxy French Frigate to sink now.

    The Frigate captain has his own ideas.
    His first broadside is very telling.

    Courageuse takes another broadside from Vanguard.
    Surely that will finish the Frog off.

    Still he bravely forges on to certain annihilation at the hands of the 74.

    Whilst the Vanguard reloads the frigate intrepidly comes alongside and returns fire.

    Sharp shooters from the tops also take their toll on each other.

    Vanguard comes about and the crippled Artesien manages to get off a raking broadside with its first
    Port broadside of the game.

    Not much, but with one last blow from Courageous, Vanguard is forced to strike.

    Curse you Frenchmen and your Frigates.
    Bligh.
    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.

    Wow.

    You favourite double shots + first broadsides really make the games quick.

    Should have had it won in that first exchange Sven, but somehow managed to seize defeat from the jaws of victory.

    Rob do you know what Cap'n Kiwi is doing for Doncaster? Ie Day (s) and games? I'm about to post the end of week update and slots are filling fast.

    Neil

    PS: might be worth waiting until I publish the lists on the 'Drome as he might pick slots that have already gone.

    The only thing I know for sure is that he wants to do the Nile.
    I will most likely see him on Saturday and certainly on Sunday so can ask him then.

    Courageuse certainly lived up to her name. Thank you for the good AAR, Rob.

    When you are not wearing your glasses, Rob, you look quite like your avatar picture of Captain Bligh. Is that why you chose it?

    Thanks for the Rep David.
    The Bligh picture was chosen simply because many years ago I read a book which told the real story of Bligh, and I felt that the popular Press had done him a gross injustice.
