    When the sloops approached the enemy vessels tried to get into Ambleteuse but three of them overshot the harbour and had to go round Cap Gris Nez where the boats of the two vessels under Lieut. STRONG of TROMPEUSE attacked them during the night. Two, each mounting two long 6-pounders and two howitzers with 13 men, were boarded and brought out under heavy fire from batteries and musketry on the beach. The other was driven on to the rocks. The enemy had two men wounded and six threw themselves into the sea.
