Good luck HMS Hinchinbrook, and now a quote from the great man himself... Vice Admiral of the White The Right Honourable Horatio, Viscount Nelson, Knight of the Most Honourable Oder of the Bath:

"The business of the English Commander-in-Chief being first to bring an Enemy's Fleet to Battle, on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that a laying of his Ships close on board the Enemy, as expeditiously as possible) and secondly, to continue them there, without separating, until the business is decided".

"Recollect that you must be a good seaman to be a good officer and also that you cannot be a good officer without being a gentleman."

Best Wishes from Eileen
