Core result-British and Danes kicked our butts. The game was interestingly odd in there was just one critical hit which was the loss of one mast to the up to that point undamaged Ajax. Thus did not have any immediate effect on the game.
The British and Danes rolled much better wind randomization at the start of the game so they took the wind gauge. After turning under our French Spanish fleet was unable to cut out any of the enemy ships, they were not able to do this either.
We had just two collisions and no ships becoming fouled...in a way it was an oddly "Calm" battle.
Here is a pic of the players and one of the battle fully engaged.
