It was a fun game to play in, although frustrating for us Frenchies.

That action was going to be frustrating for the French, no matter what. The whole setup that lead to the battle pretty much ensured a likely defeat.

Where they anchored, how they anchored and their orders from Napoleon pretty much locked it all down. Then you add the natural-born trouble of Nelson attacking and boy… you're in trouble.
