Do I understand right that:
Control of Mediterranean changes in tow cases only:
1) immediately after Toulon fleet's win and
2) in Winter quarters phase.
Capture of either Cadiz or Lisboa by either side does not affect control of Med. until Winter quarters phase.
I am not so sure. Here is the way I understand it:
Med control works different for Bourbon and Alliance.
Bourbon takes control immediately:
"Once the Bourbons have lost initial control of
the Med, the Bourbon player can re-take control only during the
Campaign phase, as a result of a naval battle won by the Toulon
Fleet (13.5.6), or as a result of taking control of both Cadiz and
Alliance can only gain control during the Winter Phase and after the -2 VP adjustment:
"The Alliance player automatically regains control in the
Winter Quarters phase as long as he has control of either Cadiz
or Lisbon (or both)"
So, the Bourbons will get their 2 VP bonus even if they manage to control Madrid and Lisbon for a short while during the campaign phase.
