Another great game that's out of print.
Buy it if you enjoy wargames, or have an interest in the fighting age of sail (especially the Patrick O'Brian fans out there....).
Players can have single ship to ship combat or recreate entire fleet actions.
A simple, elegant movement system abstracts the mechanics of sailing ships without losing realism.
The game provides rules for full sail, raking fire, boarding and crew combat ....
Watch out for an opponent with the weather gage while you are blown towards a lee shore.....
