After eight grueling turns, the two sides called the game due to time constraints. The damage was tallied and ultimately, the English handed out more damage than the French/Spanish. The 'Victory' took a horrendous amount of damage but was still afloat at the end of the game.
Lord Nelson escaped the grip of defeat that day, but there will be other battles. He wont be so lucky again!
