At 07:14, he drifted past that shattered hull of "Alexandre", Captain Guillemet, opening fire briefly before surrendering as the first rate returned it with devastating effect. Even as his ship fell back however Douglas continued to engage the French at long range, turning the guns on "Peuple" and "Tigre", joined by "Sans Pareil" which attacked "Tigre" under Captain Jacques Bedout and forced it out the French formation with severe damage.

As "Tigre" fell out, "Queen" and "London" joined the attack on the isolated ship and Bedout was forced to surrender in the face of overwhelming odds. The French ship had been severely damaged, with of water in the hold, the masts and rigging badly torn and more than 130 men killed or wounded, including Bedout, who had been hit three times.
