The English navy defeated the Spanish Armada because their ships were smaller and lighter than Spain's heavy galleons. The English's navy darted around the Armada firing cannon after cannon until the Spanish finnally gave up and headed home.
On their way home, however, a massive storm hit them and less than half of the fleet made it home alive.
