It succeeds in getting through somehow the Goliath which ran aground ashore.
However, the Goliath had already arrived at the position in front of the range of an enemy ship.
The Guerrier number located in the head of the France fleet and the continuing Conquerant number perform the firing guns broadside of the starboard by a first cartridge precious with a last-minute range in conformity with a bad tradition of France.
In this distance, mutual firing guns broadside could aim at only the sail, and did not do big damage to a Goliath.
This gun voice told that the battle started completely to all the soldiers who happened to be present on that occasion.
On the other hand, that a Minotaur and a Bellerophon separate the sail which became entangled goes wrong.
The Guerrier of the France fleet is changed to a Goliath, a Conquerant is again changed to the Zealous of succession at a target, and firing guns broadside are performed.
On the other hand, as for the Minotaur and Bellerophon of the British fleet, rigging was still entangled.
