The result of this inaction was the collapse of their economically important trade. It was finally decided that a merchant fleet had to be launched. He immediately despatched his convoy toward the English coast, and ordered his line to give chase rather than prepare for battle.Both 74 guns, were both relatively new and in good shape. The Dutch crews were inexperienced as they had not seen any significant action due to the British blockade. With a calm sea and a breeze from the north-east, Zoutman manoeuvred his line onto a port tack, heading south-east by east, and awaited Parker, who held the weather gage. When Parker raised the battle flag shortly before 08:00, for close action, the British fleet moved closer.
Zoutman then also raised his flag and opened fire, raking the. Close action ensued, lasting for three hours and 40 minutes.
Around mid-morning, the Dutch merchantmen moved away from the action and headed back to Texel. His fleet dropped to leeward and manoeuvered to reform their line of battle.
By this point, both fleets began disengaging from the fighting and sailed for home. Fewer casualties were suffered, for example, in the battle of the Chesapeake, fought a month later between fleets more than twice as large. The British reported their losses at 104 killed and 339 wounded, while the Dutch reported their losses at 142 killed and 403 wounded. While Dutch losses from the battle were well documented, naval historian William Laird Clowes noted that certain unconfirmed reports suggested that the Dutch casualties were actually much higher, possibly reaching 1100 killed and wounded.

At least one convoy did make it to the Baltic, but it flew under the Swedish flag and was accompanied by a Swedish frigate. He then resigned his command. The Kingdom of the Netherlands, commonly known as the Netherlands, is a sovereign state and constitutional monarchy with territory in western Europe and in the Caribbean. The four parts of the Kingdom - Aruba, Curaçao, Sint Maarten and the Netherlands - are constituent countries (landen in Dutch) and participate on a basis of equality as partners in the Kingdom. In practice, however, most of the Kingdom affairs are administered by the Netherlands - which comprises roughly 98% of the Kingdom's land area and population - on behalf of the entire Kingdom. Consequently, the countries of Aruba, Curaçao, and Sint Maarten are dependent on the Netherlands for matters like foreign policy and defence, although they are autonomous to a certain degree with their own parliaments.
The vast majority in land area of the constituent country of the Netherlands (as well as the Kingdom) is located in Europe, with the exception of the Caribbean Netherlands: its three special municipalities (Bonaire, Saba, and Sint Eustatius) that are located in the Caribbean. The constituent countries of Aruba, Curaçao, and Sint Maarten are located in the Caribbean as well.
