Our fourth campaign battle produced a absolute shock result -

The iconic De Zeven Provincien captured by the English off Plymouth Hoe.

Full unexpurgated version here on the blog:

thanks Bill. A very interesting game when a slower, powerful but isolated ship is harried by two inferior but still powerful opponents with better speed and manouevrability.
I did my damnedest to save DZP but with her supports too far away, it was impossible.

Great write up of an interesting action now I'm really looking forward to see how my fleet performed. Have a great time at the show tomorrow.

Thanks Dave. Your adventure is all written up and will appear next. Show was fantastic and I got a little surprise at the end of the day. :)
