In 1633, the Kemphaan, a VOC (Dutch East India Company) yacht (or pinnace?) of 100 tons, built in 1627 under the command of Captain Pruyt Tobias, was wrecked in Vietnam. The vessel departed from Galle in Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) on December 17, 1632 for Hirado in Japan. During the return voyage via Taiwan, the vessel ran ashore during a storm off the coast of 'Cochin China' on October 22, 1633. The crew of 150 and cargo were saved.
