Late 18th Century. Dick Delamere, a midshipman on leave, receives a letter from the Captain of the Europa recalling him to join the ship at Portsmouth. The Europa sails to patrol the Chops of the Channel and the Bay of Biscay. The British are hostile to the French and to the Dutch, and there are engagements with vessels of these nations. Then the vessel sails to the West Indies, where one of the problems is to exterminate the pirates infesting those waters.
