Played the March Scenario tonight - you can see a write up with pics on my blog: Duty And Daring @ Wargaming.info (http://wargaming.info/2015/duty-and-daring/).

Jim - apologies I had a blonde moment and it was only when I finished I realised I had used a 3rd Rate instead of a 1st Rate!! Ddoh!

Well done, sir. I congratulate you on your victory. Most impressive as you used a damaged 3rd rate rather than the 1st rate. :thumbsup: :salute:

:happy: :beer:

P.S. It was a bit close run - if HMS Defence had manoeuvred a little differently and got in 1 more broadside!! :shock: :shock: (Commerce de Bordeaux only had 1 Crew & 2 Hull Boxes left when the French exited).

I have now updated Post #2 with the turn by turn detail and the scenario VP results.

Note: Jim has updated his scenario in Post #11 (http://www.sailsofglory.org/showthread.php?3119-March-s-Solo-Mission-Duty-and-Daring&p=44412&viewfull=1#post44412) with a couple of clarifications I raised post game.

Eric - I'm still using my own AI Captain's names until we liaise... :wink:

...so Jim, does that mean Capitaine de corvette Cyrille Léopold Villeneuve gets some bonus VPs for his career...?? :wink: :happy: :drinks:

A very neat run by the Capitaine de corvette Cyrille Léopold Villeneuve John.
Makes all my posturing and planning when I ran the scenario seem a bit OTT.
Just going for it and letting the Devil take the hindmost seems to have done the trick very well.
Thanks for the smashing write up.
Rob.
