  3. #HISTORY#
    In 1812, French Privateer (Corsair) Robert Surcouf launched his last ship, Le Renard. She was a single-mast, 70-tonne cutter, with 10 carronades and 4 canons, crewed by 46 men. On 9 September beginning at five o'clock and lasting through the night, Le Renard successfully engaged the British vessel Alphea. She was armed with 16 cannons and over 80 elite British sailors. Combat was intense and bloody until at three o'clock in the morning, when the Alphea took two direct hits from Le Renard to (presumably) the powder magazine, which caused the ship to explode. There were no reported survivors; Surcouf returned to France with only 13 able-bodied men.
