Another experiment with distination points
I just ran the Battle of the Kentish Knock scenario, with myself as the Dutch, and the difficulty set to hard. I won my best victory in that scenario by 57% to 0%. The battle devolved into a chase, where the English 2nd Rate Andrew and several frigates were running to the Southeast. The last ship to be destroyed or taken was the frigate Ruby, which had been sailing away, at something like full speed. Several Dutch ships, with full sails set, caught the Ruby, and zigzagged across her stern, until she surrendered.
