Your contact is sending you on a prolonged campaign against multiple enemy targets next: you will have to hunt down a scouting detachment, a merchant convoy, a group of enemy ships bearing correspondence for their leader, and lastly, the flagship itself.
This is really a string of separate missions - at least insofar as you will have to start it via the Longboat Coxswain no less than four times to access the different parts of it. Each part features a sea battle against several NPC enemies. Across the whole mission, these will all be between levels 5 and 12. For most of the single sea battles (except the first one, which for that reason probably is the most difficult one), you will be supported by some NPC ships as well.
