    Default 2020 Campaign Rules.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    He gets that at the start of every year just to remind him who the captain is Jonas.
    Bligh.

    That will teach him to bring the Port to the Wardroom quicker

    This year's Missions.

    Do look at the January Mission when I post it.
    This is a good starter for new captains with a very simple theme.
    Basically this year we are using a minimum of ships and captains .
    The scenarios will deal with any theater of the war that you choose to operate in.
    My own choice will move me from the Indian Ocean to the Med, with a new set of ships and captains.
    For your own use I would suggest a variety of five or six ships.
    My own will consist of a 74, 64, 50, two frigates, and a Sloop, plus a bomb Ketch for any special missions.
    Senior Captain will hold the 74 with no flag Officer.
    You may give one special ability of choice to this Officer.
    For other Captains you may ascribe one ability to one of them also.
    One of your crews must be raw. One may have a special crew ability.
    I suggest that the raw crew is either one of your Frigates, or if only fielding one frigate, then your weakest Liner.
    The choice is, however yours.
    You may exceed the max number of ships or fewer in each scenario to fit your needs or availability of models as long as you can match the AI forces you field.
    I will add a few special rules as we go along, such as those discussed elsewhere on the Anchorage this last year.
    Things like the use of anchors, bow and stern chasers, fire by part battery, hauling ships off sandbanks, use of ships boats and landings with shore parties etc.
    Feel free to chip in at any time with suggestions or ideas on improving the scenarios.

    Rob.
