    Attacking a ship
    Before i attack a ship I try to position my ship on the right hand side of the ship i am about to attack, prior to hitting the attack key.

    When i get to the battle screen i always find my ship accurately in position on the right side just as i left it when i hit the attack key.

    This gives me the following advantages.
    I already have my ship side-on to fire my canon (useful if i am using a war galleon, those things turn slow).
    I have the wind at my back when i want to move around or if i want to board the other ship.

    More on head swirlies

    Just can't keep morale up (some great research by bigchief)

    Way to go.

    As a rule of thumb, attacking from the right or east is always better:

    Has someone ever seen the wind blowing in another direction on the Spanish Main? :)
