The Ark Royal and Musarde shot each other to pieces, leaving the Ark Royal as the only ship in the area with a mast. The Epee has been dismasted, but between her ship ability and an oarsman, she can still shoot with all 4 cannons.

Commander Temple’s ability transported the Ark Royal and Musarde back home, where the Malton was arriving. However, the Georgetown was also there.

The Georgetown dismasted the Malton. The Ark Royal sailed out for a rescue, but missed the Georgetown and was also dismasted. The English were forced to use a captured French ship, the Musarde. The Epee had been sunk by the Pawtucket, while the San Pedro finally finished rowing home and the Algiers made all speed towards the northern action.

At this point, each player revealed their gold to see if the 1 was worth fighting over. The scores were hard to believe: 14-13-13! (14 for the Americans and 13 each for the English and Spanish)

The Musarde neutralizes the Pawtucket while the Algiers chases the Georgetown.

The Algiers stole the coin, and thus began a series of boarding parties where the coin changed hands back and forth.

The Georgetown finally got the better of the Algiers, but the Musarde was waiting.
