stepping stones of maritime history


During the disaster, the ships Iepenrode, Goudriaan, Flora, Buis and Duinbeek were smashed. The ships Westerwijk, Rodenrijs and Victoria stranded. Only the Papenburg was 'miraculously' preserved. 208 crew members lost their lives. (GM)
Following this disaster, it was investigated whether the Saldahna bay 100 km to the north would be a better rendezvous place for the VOC. This ultimately did not happen.
