Abstract This was the year that determined who would rule the seas-a question that had been disputed for two centuries by Holland, Portugal, Spain, England, and France. The famous three-master Victory survives from that heyday of the sailing ship, and this program takes us into and around the ship and describes the life of the sailor and the principles of seamanship. The program then proceeds to the famous battle that determined mastery of the seas: the collapse of the Peace of Amiens and the British blockade of the French ports from Brest to Toulon; the French threat of invasion and the building up and staffing of the British fleet; the background and character of Nelson; the battle between the Redoutable and the Victory; the death of Nelson; the end of the battle, whose loss Napoleon blamed on the weather.
