Glorious 1st of June

In the midst of what at times is a slightly insane work schedule, I grabbed at Keith's invitation to play  a little 'Sails of Glory', it being the Glorious 1st of June and all. Adrian and I commanded four British 3rd raters, while Jon and Keith commanded respectively Spanish and French 3rd raters.

My crowning glory in the midst of my incompetence was raking the lead Spanish 3rd rater with double shot.  No battle report, but just a couple of cool photos.


Spanish and British ships in what might have seemed a slightly ungentlemanly melee. We chose not to board each other, a good call for me as the lead Spanish ship sank.


Just a great opportunity for some laughs and a lot of fun.

  1. The wonderfully executed British manoeuvre that cut the French & Spanish line is well illustrated.
