Great news! You will thoroughly enjoy the game. Trafalgar is a great set of rules, and pure fun to play. My fleet gets regular outings, and I have never had a less than enjoyable game - even when getting flattened by the wind!
Very true, it's great fun! Got to love it when when the wind mucks your plans up... I think the fact you can play it with a variable number of ships is great; it's not just for large-scale actions like the Battle of Trafalgar.
