The British released Essex Junior, and she sailed into harbour, past various forts that mistook her for an enemy ship and fired on her, without effect.
Eventually, on 28 March, Porter attempted to break out of the harbour.
A squall took off his main topmast and he attempted to return to harbour but Phoebe and Cherub drove Essex into a nearby bay and defeated her in a short engagement. In the engagement, Phoebe had four men killed, including her first lieutenant, and seven men wounded.
Cherub had one killed and three wounded, including her captain.
The British reported that Essex had 24 killed and 45 wounded, though the Americans reported higher casualties.
Lieutenant Pearson of Phoebe commanded the prize crew that sailed Essex back to Britain, where he was promoted to Commander.
