    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.

    The British captain now manouvered to cross the French stern but his gun crews made a bit of a hash of it and very few shots hit home.

    And the young English captain just managed to avoid sailing off the edge of the world.

    After another broadside, we had to call time on the afternoon session.

    With no clear victor we started to tidy up and Ruth very kindly gave a win to the young English captain, thus giving us only our second victory after a very lean day at the braces.

    Thanks Jonas.
    It is not easy to try and run games, explain rules and talk to punters whilst following all the action. This is why the comments are a bit sketchy in places and the pictures seem to jump ahead a bit more quickly than some of the action does.

    Thanks chaps. Glad you enjoyed them even though I did not manage to grab all the action.
