|My fellow Dutch players, Admiral|
Ron (l.) and Commodore Tim H.
Tim Hitchings always puts on a great fleet action at WBC. This year, the scenario involved a meeting engagement in the Dogger Banks between a British fleet of six ships-of-the-line and six frigates escorting nine merchant vessels against a similarly outfitted Dutch fleet. The goal of each fleet was to escort its merchants safely off the opposite side of the board. I served as the rear commodore of the Dutch fleet, with the ship-of-the-line Holland and a frigate under my command, as well as three of the merchants.
