I was playing another game and my opponent wanted to know how we determine who goes first. I told him that the French and Brits switch off each season. When I looked in the rules though to confirm, all I could find was that the French started first. Am I correct in this assumption that each player alternates each season?

The French go first (4.A.2) until the event Quiberon Bay occurs.

No.

Rule 4.0 A2 - The French go first every season, until the event card Quiberon Bay is played as the event, then the British go first every season thereafter.

I see, said the blind man. I thought there was some mechanic to the starting player. Thanks for clearing up this problem. It didn't affect our game in anyway, but I didn't want to encounter a similar situation in a future game.
