Legend of the Flying Dutchman
 
The year: 1641. It is said that Captain van der Decken and his crew are on their way home to Holland. As they approach the tip of Africa he fails to notice the dark clouds looming and he did not hear the fierce screams of terror from his man in the lookout as he sailed straight into a fierce storm. After hours of battle with nature their ship hit treacherous rocks and began to sink. The captain was not ready to die and he screamed out a curse: 

 
"I will round this Cape even if I have to keep sailing until doomsday"
Since that day, Captain van der Decken and his crew sails the oceans, doomed never to reach a port.
