The British had larger fleet the Royal George and Governor Scimcoe under Adriane command while I had the Prince Regent, Seneca (called the slow poke Seneca at the start of the game) Earl of Moria.
Both side headed straight for each other the Americans having to move against the Wind which Jonathan did very skill fully.
He anchored tho Oneida in the channel while maneuvering the Lord Nelson for the open see.
He almost made it to but the Prince Regent got a good shot at Nelsons sales and dis-masted her.
Oneida and the for got in shots on us as we closed then up anchor to try and rescue the Nelson unleashing a devastating broadside on Earl of Moria.
|Clear for Action!|
At the same time Seneca grappled and captured Lord Nelson. Jonathan chose to fire into the captured Lord Nelson rather then Seneca which gave me the chance to rake Oneida at short range with devastating results. Caught between the Prince Regent and Seneca the Oneida was final Crippled.
Adrian had meanwhile silenced the American fort gallantly commanded by Allen who sank Earl of Moria and badly damaged both of Adrian's ships. It was a hard fought but decisive Victory for the Royal Navy. Great game guys, thanks Rich for putting this on!
