"Howe's Trafalgar": Battle of Trafalgar August 19th 1805

Objective:

The allied French and Spanish fleet has to get past the British fleet to reach Cadiz and Marseilles . Their primary objective is to escape off the East edge of the map. The British objective is to stop as many as possible. Napoleon wanted at least 51 Ships of the Line at Boulogne by August 1st (The British have, according to his French spies 25 ships of the Line in the Channel). He had only 46, so he called off the invasion. He wanted a two to one advantage in Ships of the Line over Britain.

After the Battle of Biscay, the surviving  French and Spanish ships ran back to El Ferrol. Now they are trying to return to Cadiz and Marseilles where they can be better protected and repaired for another try next spring.

To end the Battle the Allied players must disengage to the East, or simply destroy the other fleet. Other than the free disengagement to the East for the Allies, normal victory points apply.
