Our club put on a relight of the historic battle using the 'Blood, Bilge and Iron Balls' rules; if you would like a look there is an an after action report on my blog:


…and more photos (over 100!) on the club's Facebook page:

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.
