You have to attack any other ship. Preferrably a ship with lower "power". Power is indicated by the number next to the fist icon when you hover the cursor over any other ship. Trading hips like to surrender a lot, so it may be worth to attack one of the military ships. There are some with a power in the 20 region out there.

The the actual fight.

-you start with maximum 3 ships, same goes fo the enemy
-you have different ammo for different purposes (shown in the top center of the screen):
(1) the first looks like a solid steel ball and mainly reduces the hearts of the enemy ships; it is used to sink a ship quickly; so we won't need this one
(2) the second looks like two steel balls connected with a chain: these mainly reduce the white icon of the enemy ships, which are the sails; so these will slow the enemy ship down; I always start with this ammo, maybe 3-4 hits or more
(3) the third looks like a bunch of small bullets; these mainly reduce the people on the other ship; this is important so you can successfully board the enemy ship; if they have more people on their ship and you try to board them, they will board YOU and you lose your ship; I used this ammo after I slowed the ship down enough
(4) capture the enemy ship (choose with X); when the enemy ship is slowed down and their crew is reduced load this up and stay in the circle arond the enemy ship

And another tip which is pretty obvious: You only shoot when the enemy ship is on the side of your ship. Not when it's in the front or in the back of your ship. So always position yourself in the right angle when shooting. Your ship will shoot quite far and always hits WHEN it shoots. So just keep pumping RT until it shoots.
