Ottoman Fleet, Mandalzade Hüsameddin Pasha

Estimates of the Ottoman light forces vary. The most probable suggests that 6 frigates (karavele in Turkish terminology of the period), 6 xebecs, 8 galleys and 32 minot craft were burnt and 5 galleys were captured. According to Turkish sources a single bastarda (large galley) escaped.
