The english, the victory was atributed to Sir Walter Raleigh, the story goes that he was playing bowls and insisted on finishing the game before setting sail. The victory was attained by the use of fireships whiich broke up the close formation of the fleet allowing the English fleet to pick off most of the main force, the remainder sailed AROUND Britain to get home, during which, more ships were lost due to storms.

Amendment: It wasn't Raleigh who was purported to be playing bowls on Plymouth Hoe, it was Sir Francis Drake.

It was actually by Bryan Stevenson who was a Scotish Warrior that shot at the Spanish with cannons from the shore.

The Spanish Armada was not defeated by one man, it was defeated by the weather and its inability to sail against the prevailing wind.
