The Flying Dutchman

The Flying Dutchman

You are going to read one of the oldest and scariest stories in the world.  The legend of The Flying Dutchman began in 1641, when a Dutch ship sank off the Coast of the Cope of Good Hope. The name of the Dutchman was VanderDecken.  He was a fearless Captain and he had a very scary face.  He looked like a dead man.  Futhermore, his clothes were old and ripped.  One day in front of them was a storm bigger than the Atlantic Ocean.

The captain and his crew battled for hours to get out of the storm.  The ship had hit treacherous rocks and began to sink very quickly.

So, even today whenever a storm brews at the Cape of Good Hope, you will able to see the ship and its captain - The Flying Dutchman.  The legend goes that whoever sees the ship will have a death as terrible as the Dutchman.
