As the age of the sailing ship is drawing to a close, Lieutenant St. Vincent Halfhyde takes on the task of transporting to Chile a vain foreign officer, a meek Church cleric, a bombastic widow, an uptight Scotland Yard inspector, and a querulous British loudmouth Admiral in service with the Chileans.

Halfhyde to the Narrows (Halfhyde, book 4) by Philip McCutchan
Less action than usual for Halfhyde, but quite a lot of Victorian amusement for genteel armchair sailors. The Queen, of course, is not amused. With a ship to call his own at last, Royal Navy Lieutenant St Vincent Halfhyde sails for the Dardanelles in command of the little torpedo-boat Vendetta, part of a flotilla sent to rescue a Britsih sailing-ship unlawfully detained by the Russians.
Unfortunately, Halfhyde's first command comes complete with a pompous flotilla captain in love with his own voice, and the looming threat of the irascible Admiral Prince Gorsinski. Cutting out the sailing-ship from amidst the Russian fleet and sneaking her back through the Narrows under the deadly batteries of the Turks and the Russians is the easy part.
Facing Gorsinski's vengeance and the legendary wrath of the Romanovs is another matter!
