De Ruyter tried unsuccessfully to capture the Royal Prince. At seven o’clock that evening, the battle had been fought and the retreat was sounded. Rupert was furious at the French for abandoning him. Not one ship was lost and the English had captured four of the returning merchant ships. Three thousand men were killed, more than half of them English or French. Isaac Sweers, Johan de Liefde, Jan Pauluszoon van Gelder, David Swerius, Hendrick Visscher and Dirk Jobszoon Kiela were dead and Cornelis de Liefde, on board the Gelderland, was seriously wounded.
