BothIt was a tactical victory for Germany in terms of ships sunk and lives lost, but it was a strategic victory for Britain in that the Grand Fleet was still intact, and the German navy did not again seriously challenge its dominance of European waters

Germany took more tonnage and lives at Jutland, but reading the account and been fair the Royal navy were not fully engaged in the battle and still arriving when it was under way.

Having said that though i think it is a British victory as the Grand fleet of the Royal navy was still intact and the ones they lost were been replaced in British ship yards after, and the German navy were the first at Jutland to turn back to German shores and never venture out again in WW1, whilst the British continued blockading Germany right till the end therefore remaining the number 1 navy in the world.
