My acrylic painting of the frigate HMS Boreas, captained by Horatio Nelson, leaving Gibraltar. Painted on canvas paper, framed and hung in the ‘Gibraltar Fine Arts Gallery’ (Original Sold)

In 1784, as captain of HMS Boreas, Nelson made his mark on the Caribbean as a staunch enforcer of England’s Navigation Acts. Assigned to English Harbour in Antigua, Nelson soon established himself as a force to be reckoned with when it came to illegal trading between the English colonies in the Caribbean and traders from the United States. His early assignment to Antigua, in command of H.M.S. Boreas, first brought him to Nevis in 1785.
