CHAPTER FIVE

when there came a flash in the darkness and a shot splashed into the sea two cables to their starboard bow.
" Steady as she goes, Master Barlow," Rodney said.
" Aye, aye, Sir." Barlow's voice was less doubtful now. He understood what Rodney was trying to do.
The breeze was growing stronger and then, even as Rodney gave a sigh of relief, there was a crash which made the ship shudder from stem to stern.
For a moment Rodney felt himself reel on the quarterdeck.
" Are you hurt, Sir?" Barlow asked.
" No, keep her going."
It was a wide shot that should have missed them completely. Rodney's instinct told him that what he had done was right in principle, but the Sea Hawk had caught it broadside on and he knew a great deal of damage must have been done.
The next shot was half a mile away from them, and the next, and the next. It was lucky that the masts had survived and the Sea Hawk could still scud away from her oppressor. But the shot which had hit them was by no means an insignificant one. Rodney wanted to go below and assess the damage, but he knew that for the moment he must stay on deck and correct their course-a course which must take them out of reach of the Spanish guns before the dawn broke.
