The fleet was caught in a violent levante strong easterly wind, well-known to windsurfers in nearby Tarifaand facing the risk of being forced against the rocky Spanish coastline, the captain, Sir Francis Wheeler, attempted to tack into the wind and tuck back behind Gibraltar.

Water entered the open gun ports and the end came swiftly, while the Admiral slept. Only two persons survived the sinking; sussex days later Admiral Sir Francis Wheeler's body, clad in a nightshirt, washed up on shore. The funds never reached the Duke. A year hms, England again attempted to ship money to Savoy - but too late. The Duke secretly changed sides hms took the French offer. His defection brought the war to an end in a stalemate.
