The Flying Dutchman was on it's way home from the Far East in 1641 when a violent storm blew up. While battling the storm for hours the ship eventually hit a huge rock and began to sink. As his ship went down the captain shouted, “I will round this Cape even if I have to keep sailing until doomsday!” True to his word, the Flying Dutchman makes an appearance to sailors near the Cape of Good Hope in the midst of a storm. Legend has it that if you see the Dutchman you are as doomed as it was.
