Der Schiffbruch der General Grant erregte seinerzeit Beste Spielothek in Rubi finden allem durch die Leiden und die dramatischen Umstände, die zur Rettung der wenigen Überlebenden führten, weltweites Aufsehen. Flying Dutch

In der Folge werden daher chronologisch eine Reihe von Sichtungen aufgeführt, wobei klar sein muss, dass selbst ein zeitgenössischer Beleg keine Gewähr für Faktizität bieten muss.

Später stellte sich heraus, dass die Barracouta zu diesem Zeitpunkt Meilen entfernt war und in jener Nacht kein Boot wasserte. Der anonyme Verfasser des Berichts führt weiter drei eigene Sichtungen von Phantomschiffen an, darunter eine ganz typische in einem Sturm.

Am Kurz darauf sei an Bord ein Feuer ausgebrochen, dem mehrere Seeleute zum Opfer fielen. Der Schiffbruch der General Grant erregte seinerzeit vor allem durch die Leiden und die dramatischen Umstände, die zur Rettung der wenigen Überlebenden führten, weltweites Aufsehen.

Hinzu kam, dass die General Grant eine erhebliche Menge Gold mit sich führte. Vielleicht zieht diese Dramatik die Legendenbildung an, jedenfalls soll man unmittelbar, bevor die General Grant am Woher dieser Bericht stammt, bleibt unklar.

Zur Legendenbildung trug wohl auch bei, dass mehrere Versuche, die Ladung der General Grant zu bergen, teils tragisch scheiterten und bis heute erfolglos blieben.

Die wohl bekannteste angebliche Sichtung des Fliegenden Holländers erfolgte am In seinem Tagebuch schreibt Prinz George:.

Dieses Zeugnis scheint gewichtig und wird praktisch immer zitiert, wenn von Sichtungen des Fliegenden Holländers die Rede ist.

Ein entsprechender Eintrag im Logbuch der Inconstant ist zwar nicht bekannt und Prinz George war damals eben 16 Jahre alt, eine aus der Luft gegriffene Darstellung wäre aber kaum zeitnah mit offizieller Unterstützung publiziert worden.

Man hörte dreimal eine Glocke schlagen, dann wendete das Geisterschiff nach steuerbord und verschwand. Sowohl der 2. Offizier Davies als auch der 3.

Offizier Nicholas Monsarrat sahen einen Schoner, der unter vollen Segeln lief, obwohl Windstille herrschte. Um eine Kollision zu vermeiden, musste die Jubilee ausweichen.

Der vorerst letzte Bericht über eine Sichtung stammt von der Straat Magelhaen , einem niederländischen Frachter, in der Nacht des 7.

Oktober Der Kapitän P. Algra und sein zweiter Offizier wollten dem unter vollen Segeln fahrenden Fliegenden Holländer begegnet sein, wobei ein Mann am Steuerrad des Geisterschiffes klar zu sehen war.

Kurz bevor es zu einer Kollision gekommen wäre, verschwand das Schiff. Die ersten Hinweise erscheinen in Reiseberichten und Seemannserinnerungen des späten Jeffrey Baron de Raigersfeld berichtet, er habe den Fliegenden Holländer selbst gesehen und die Sage gehört, dass es einer von zwei holländischen Ostindienfahrern sei, die sich gegenseitige Hilfe in Not versprochen hatten.

Der Kapitän des verfluchten Schiffes hatte dieses Versprechen gebrochen und müsse nun zur Warnung endlos über die Meere segeln. Leydens Freund Walter Scott greift das auf und erweitert es in Rokeby Lawrence den Fliegenden Holländer als Inspiration für die Beschreibung eines düster-gespenstischen Schiffes in seinem Gedicht benannt.

Fast gliding along, a gloomy bark Her sails are full, though the wind is still, And there blows not a breath her sails to fill. Am Abend wurde es von einem anderen Schiff angerufen und gefragt, ob es nicht besser sei, in die Bucht zu laufen, worauf der Kapitän antwortete:.

Was natürlich auch prompt in Erfüllung ging. Er erscheint als ganz gewöhnlicher Seemann, hält ein paar Briefe in der Hand und bittet, diese nach Amsterdam zu bestellen.

Man antwortet ihm, das hätte wohl nicht viel Sinn, da die Empfänger wohl lange schon tot seien. Darauf zeigt sich der Matrose und die anderen Männer im Beiboot sehr betrübt und von Heimweh zerrissen.

Nun wird zu jedem einzelnen Brief, den der Matrose bestellt haben will, ihm gesagt, warum das nicht mehr möglich sei.

Zum Schluss legt der grausam enttäuschte Matrose den Packen Briefe, den niemand annehmen will, auf das Deck und verschwindet.

Diese kleine Novelle erschien bereits 2 Monate später ohne Herkunftsangabe in deutscher Übersetzung im Stuttgarter Morgenblatt für gebildete Stände.

In diesem verschlafenen Nest wird eines Tages ein Schiff gesichtet, das mit vollen Segeln gegen den Wind den Hudson hinauf läuft und weder auf Anruf noch auf Kanonenbeschuss reagiert.

Die Kanonenkugel scheint durch dieses Schiff einfach hindurch zu fliegen. Hans van Pelt, ein alter Holländer, der auch die Kolonie am Kap der Guten Hoffnung kennt, meint, es sei der Fliegende Holländer, der nun nach Amerika gekommen sei, nachdem er am Kap einen Hafen zu finden aufgegeben habe.

Die Sichtungen wurden mit der Zeit seltener, hörten aber nie ganz auf, und man meinte, dass sie ein schlechtes Omen seien, das auf das Ende der niederländischen Kolonien an der Ostküste Amerikas hinwies.

In seiner Erzählung transponiert Hauff das Motiv vom verfluchten Kapitän und seiner untoten Mannschaft in einen orientalisch-islamischen Kontext.

In der Rahmenerzählung der Karawane berichtet der Erzähler Achmet die Begegnung mit dem verfluchten Schiff als eigenes Erlebnis: Aus einem Schiffbruch kann Achmet sich mit einem Diener als einzige Überlebende auf dieses Schiff retten, dessen Besatzung aus Leichen besteht, die sich nicht von der Stelle bewegen lassen.

In der folgenden Nacht verfallen die Geretteten in einen lähmenden Schlaf, in dem sie Geräusche von Tritten und Waffengeklirre zu hören meinen und als der Diener für einen Augenblick erwacht, sieht er den Kapitän und den Steuermann lebendig in der Kajüte sitzen, singend und trinkend.

Das hilft. Aus einer Nebenkammer beobachten sie Kapitän und Steuermann sich in einer fremden Sprache streitend, gefolgt von Kampfgeräuschen an Deck.

Am anderen Tag ist alles wieder so wie es war. Zudem scheint über Nacht die Mannschaft die bei Tag gesegelte Strecke wieder zurückzusegeln.

Um das zu verhüten, umwickeln sie zur Nacht die eingezogenen Segel mit Koranversen und dem Zauberspruch auf Pergament und segeln bei Tag in die Richtung, in der sie Land vermuten.

Durch seine vielseitigen Trimmmöglichkeiten und die immense Segelfläche in Relation zum Gewicht ist der Flying Dutchman eine rasante, jedoch anspruchsvolle Jolle, welche zur Beherrschung viel Können voraussetzt.

Er gilt noch heute, fast 60 Jahre nach seiner Entwicklung, als schnellste konventionelle Jolle. Doch bedeutete der Verlust des Olympiastatus nicht das Ende der Bootsklasse.

Seit darf der Flying Dutchman auch mit einem Mast aus kohlenstofffaserverstärktem Kunststoff gesegelt werden. Zu berühmten Flying-Dutchman-Seglern zählt Rodney Pattison , der und olympisches Gold und Olympiasilber gewann, von bis dreimal in Folge Weltmeister und von bis sechsmal Europameister wurde.

Van der Decken replied: "May I be eternally damned if I do, though I should beat about here till the day of judgment.

This vessel is never seen but with foul weather along with her. There have been many reported or alleged sightings in the 19th and 20th centuries.

He was on a three-year voyage during his late adolescence in with his elder brother Prince Albert Victor of Wales and their tutor John Neill Dalton.

The princes' log indeterminate as to which prince, due to later editing before publication records the following for the pre-dawn hours of 11 July , off the coast of Australia in the Bass Strait between Melbourne and Sydney :.

July 11th. A strange red light as of a phantom ship all aglow, in the midst of which light the masts, spars and sails of a brig yards distant stood out in strong relief as she came up on the port bow, where also the officer of the watch from the bridge clearly saw her, as did the quarterdeck midshipman, who was sent forward at once to the forecastle; but on arriving there was no vestige nor any sign whatever of any material ship was to be seen either near or right away to the horizon, the night being clear and the sea calm.

Thirteen persons altogether saw her At Nicholas Monsarrat , the novelist who wrote The Cruel Sea , described the phenomenon in the Pacific Ocean in his unfinished final book "Master Mariner", which was partly inspired by this tale he lived and worked in South Africa after the war and the story of the Wandering Jew.

Probably the most credible explanation is a superior mirage or Fata Morgana seen at sea. The news soon spread through the vessel that a phantom-ship with a ghostly crew was sailing in the air over a phantom-ocean, and that it was a bad omen, and meant that not one of them should ever see land again.

The captain was told the wonderful tale, and coming on deck, he explained to the sailors that this strange appearance was caused by the reflection of some ship that was sailing on the water below this image, but at such a distance they could not see it.

There were certain conditions of the atmosphere, he said, when the sun's rays could form a perfect picture in the air of objects on the earth, like the images one sees in glass or water, but they were not generally upright, as in the case of this ship, but reversed—turned bottom upwards.

This appearance in the air is called a mirage. He told a sailor to go up to the foretop and look beyond the phantom-ship. The man obeyed, and reported that he could see on the water, below the ship in the air, one precisely like it.

Just then another ship was seen in the air, only this one was a steamship, and was bottom-upwards, as the captain had said these mirages generally appeared.

Soon after, the steamship itself came in sight. The sailors were now convinced, and never afterwards believed in phantom-ships.

Another optical effect known as looming occurs when rays of light are bent across different refractive indices.

This could make a ship just off the horizon appear hoisted in the air. There is a foot one-design high-performance two-person monohull racing dinghy named the Flying Dutchman FD.

It made its Olympic debut at the Summer Games competitions in the Gulf of Naples and is still one of the fastest racing dinghies in the world. In this version, the Flying Dutchman is a man, not a ship.

The two-hour long film, scripted by its director Albert Lewin , sets the main action on the Mediterranean coast of Spain during the summer of Centuries earlier the Dutchman had killed his wife, wrongly believing her to be unfaithful.

At his trial he is unrepentant and curses God. Providence condemned him to roam the seas until he found the true meaning of love. In the only plot device taken from earlier versions of the story, once every seven years the Dutchman is allowed ashore for six months to search for a woman who will love him enough to die for him, releasing him from his curse, and he finds her in Pandora.

In the Pirates of the Caribbean films, the ship made its first appearance in Dead Man's Chest under the command of the fictional captain, Davy Jones.

The story and attributes of the ship were inspired by the actual Flying Dutchman of nautical lore.

The —98 poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge , The Rime of the Ancient Mariner , contains a similar account of a ghost ship, which may have been influenced by the tale of the Flying Dutchman.

Dutch poet J. Slauerhoff published a number of related poems, particularly in his volume Eldorado. In Marryat's version, Terneuzen , in the Netherlands , is described as the home of the captain, who is called "Van der Decken" "of the decks".

Irving had already used the story based on Moore's poem in his Bracebridge Hall The Death Ship , by W. Clark Russell , was published in Fenton's ship encounters the Flying Dutchman , and an accident leaves him stranded aboard the cursed ship with her ghostly crew.

The captain, Cornelius Vanderdecken, tells Fenton that his ship, the Braave , sailed from Batavia in I looked at him as closely as I durst. His eyes were extraordinarily piercing and passionate, with the cruel brilliance in them such as may be noticed in the insane; the lower part of his face was hidden in hair, but the skin of as much of it as was visible, for his cap was dragged low down upon his brows, was pale, of a haggard sallowness, expressed best in paintings of the dead where time has produced the original whiteness of the pigment.

It was impossible that I should have observed this in him in the mani-coloured lamplight of the preceding night. Yet did not his graveyard complexion detract from the majesty and imperiousness of his mien and port.

I could readily conceive that the defiance of his heart would be hell-like in obstinacy, and that here was a man whose pride and passions would qualify him for a foremost place among the most daring of those fallen spirits of whom our glorious poet has written.

The first novel was titled Castaways of the Flying Dutchman and was first published by Puffin Books in The second was titled The Angel's Command and was released by Puffin in The third and final book of the trilogy due to Jacques' death in was titled Voyage of Slaves and was released by Puffin in In the novel The Flying Dutchman by the Russian novelist Anatoly Kudryavitsky , the ghost ship rebuilds itself from an old barge abandoned on the bank of a big Russian river, and offers itself as a refuge to a persecuted musicologist.

In this version, the Dutchman is not a ghost ship but crewed by immortals who can only visit land once every seven years when the unbearable smell that is a side-effect of the elixir of life wears off.

Ward Moore in his story "Flying Dutchman" [30] used the myth as a metaphor for an automated bomber plane which continues to fly over an Earth where humanity long since totally destroyed itself and all life in a nuclear war.

In Craig Alanson's novel series Expeditionary Force , the Flying Dutchman is a large alien starship that has been commandeered by the human protagonist Joe Bishop, an ancient AI and a multi-national military and civilian crew - who named the ship.

Heine had first briefly used the legend in his Reisebilder: Die Nordsee Pictures of Travel: the North Sea , which simply repeats from Blackwood's Magazine the features of the vessel being seen in a storm and sending letters addressed to persons long since dead.

In his elaboration, it was once thought that it may have been based on Fitzball's play, which was playing at the Adelphi Theatre in London, but the run had ended on 7 April and Heine did not arrive in London until the 14th.

This imaginary play, unlike Fitzball's play, which has the Cape of Good Hope location, in Heine's account is transferred to the North Sea off Scotland.

Wagner's opera was similarly planned to take place off the coast of Scotland, although during the final rehearsals he transferred the action to another part of the North Sea, off Norway.

Von Frederick Marryats erschienenem Roman The Phantom Ship [41] erschienen im gleichen Jahr noch drei unterschiedliche deutsche Übersetzungen und Marryats Roman wurde in der Folge im deutschen Sprachraum populärer als im englischen. Für eine solche Herleitung spricht, dass auch in den Gewässern am Kap Hoorn , die ähnlich gefährlich waren, Berichte vom Fliegenden Holländer lokalisiert worden sind, vor allem nach Eröffnung des Sueskanals , als die Fahrt um das Kap der Guten Hoffnung an Bedeutung verlor und dafür das Kap Hoorn zum prominentesten Gefahrenpunkt der Seefahrt wurde.

Jun 11, Annette rated it really liked it Shelves: humor , fantasy. The story is set in modern times, and features a seriously disturbed if somehow still marginally functional crew and their captain that is miles away from Disney's "Pirates" version.

Somehow, I greatly prefer Holt's telling! As in his other books, the wit is constant and acerbic, and features characters stuck in mind-numbing, spirit killing jobs much like the rest of us the heroine is an accountant!

Highly recommended. A perfectly enjoyable book. I can see why comparisons are frequently made with Pratchett, as the styles of comedy and the lightweight handling of fantastical elements are very similar.

However I can also see why Pratchett has endured and Holt hasn't. Where Discworld slowly became a slate where Pratchett could write numerous styles of narrative and delve into various aspects of humanity and history, Tom Holt apparently just wrote a lot of humorous urban fantasy that didn't really connect at all.

I A perfectly enjoyable book. I said to Toby as I was reading, I think that his style of fiction has passed its use-by date.

On the downside, a lot of the jokes were definitely only funny in the 90s and I found some of the overarching humour a bit juvenile as in, the Dutchman can only put to shore once every seven years because he and his crew smell really bad; the scenario is handled well, but in the background you can kind of imagine the author giggling like a schoolboy I had fun, but I don't think I'll be reading any more of his books, especially not while I've still got the majority of the Discworld novels to read.

View 1 comment. Jun 13, Karen Floyd rated it it was amazing Shelves: re-read , fiction , humor. I was badly in need of a laugh this weekend, and this book never fails.

Jun 13, David Samuels rated it it was amazing. On Goodreads I noticed folks negatively contrasting this work from Terry Pratchett. Plus the plot of Flying Dutch seems less like Pratchett and more like something straight out of Captain Underpants.

Cornelius Vanderdecker aka the Flying Dutchman and his crew have lived over three centuries thanks to drinking the elixir of immortality prepared by Fortunatus Magnus.

Only once ever seven years does the odor wear off enough for them to interact with civilization. Having failed to lift the curse with nuclear experiments, Vanderdecker and his crew must seek out Magnus and learn his recipe for deodorant strong enough to dispel the curse.

See what I mean about Captain Underpants? By introducing an accountant. Why is it that, whenever I remember this fact, I want to scream?

When trying to cheer herself up, she never got further than nevertheless, but it was worth giving it just one more go. But she does it well.

This lands her in trouble with her superiors, who tell her all about Vanderdecker and how his life insurance policy not only threatens to bankrupt the company, but perhaps the world itself.

Dec 20, Carole B rated it really liked it. When every word and sentence bears weight, when each paragraph and chapter fits neatly into a larger structure, to read quickly is a sin.

Consuming media this way certainly has much to recommend it, and provides many rewards, but it is not the only way to do things. And I never regret it, with Tom Holt.

If I keep writing, I would love to know how to make things like this. The world has enough manifestos, enough poetic masterworks.

Maybe life should be lived like a great work, and entertainment can be appreciated and adored as it is instead of having to serve some great moral purpose.

May 08, Janice rated it liked it Shelves: not-kept-library , fantasy. I'd wanted to try this author for a while, so when I found a two-volume version of this and "Faust Among Equals" for a decent price, I picked it up.

Though I didn't particularly enjoy Faust, it also ended up with three stars because I didn't not like it enough to only give it two stars.

Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for it at the time. Don't know. But this one skews the other way. I'd give it three and a half if I could, but it's not quite enough to make me give it four.

Characters were more l I'd wanted to try this author for a while, so when I found a two-volume version of this and "Faust Among Equals" for a decent price, I picked it up.

Characters were more likable, and the story itself was more engaging. However, given the amount of material I have to read, it was not enough to make me seek out another from this author.

Aug 26, Nynke rated it really liked it. Love his writing style. Very much British humour. Had hoped for some dutch anecdotes, but i guess if you dont know the culture that well best to stay away lest you just end up with common stereotypes.

Really want to give 4. Very much enjoyed the book but it wasnt one of those where i couldnt wait to continue reading.

Aug 16, Stephen Lewis rated it it was amazing. A fun story that left me feeling happy. I'm sorry but I had to give up on this.

I made it to page 50 and I just can't stay focused. There's so much information on the tiniest little things and it makes for a slow story.

Mar 02, Jennifer rated it it was amazing. The best of all of his books that I've read so far In this case Vanderdecken is the fabled Flying Dutchman who is cursed to roam the planet forever with a group of stinky crewmates.

There is genuine mirth to be had as an exasperated Vanderdecken has to deal with people who have lived less than a century. When taking a snarky look at 90s Britain, Holt is at his best; using the fish out of water crewmates to highlight the hypocrisy of bankers.

However, not everything in the book works as well. There is a storyline about trying to lift the curse and this becomes a little confused and convoluted towards the end — a gentle story just about the crew would have worked better.

Also, Holt has a tendency to read a little smugly at time as if he knows what is best. It is hard to read about sticking one up to the Hooray Henrys, when sometimes the book reads like it may have been written by one.

Overall though, a good story with some well written and witty lines. Apr 12, Nathan Dehoff rated it really liked it. This book gives a different account of the fate of Vanderdecker, the Flying Dutchman, and his crew from that presented in Wagner's opera and other sources.

Instead of being cursed by the Devil, they accidentally drink an elixir created by the alchemist Juan de Montalban, which makes them immortal but also gives them a smell so foul they have to remain at sea in order to avoid bothering people with it.

The part about going ashore every seven years is true, however, as that's when the smell tempor This book gives a different account of the fate of Vanderdecker, the Flying Dutchman, and his crew from that presented in Wagner's opera and other sources.

The part about going ashore every seven years is true, however, as that's when the smell temporarily dissipates.

In the modern era, an accountant named Jane Doland meets Vanderdecker, and learns that he took out a life insurance policy.

It has since accrued so much money that any attempt to pay out the benefits would bankrupt the entire world economy.

Montalban also shows up again, and I wondered if he was based on a real person, but the closest I can find to someone with his name is a writer named Juan Perez de Montalban.

Anyway, Montalban has been pulling the strings of various governments for years, and was responsible for both the invention of the computer and the nuclear industry, all so he could figure out a way to combat the foul smell.

Danny Bennett, a character from Who's Afraid of Beowulf? It takes the same idea of the world of myth and legend meeting up with the modern world in a humorous way, but develops it better.

Jun 09, Stephanie Graves rated it it was amazing Shelves: comic-fantasy , humor. I love this book. I've loved it, in fact, for years and years--I probably first encountered it in my early teens, though I have no idea how.

How does a teenage girl living in the rural south come across a british comic fantasy novel about a 16th century sea captain and his cursed crew? It's a mystery lost to the ages.

But I came across a copy in a used bookstore recently and couldn't resist rereading it. It was actually more delightful than I remembered, though possibly because now I understand a I love this book.

It was actually more delightful than I remembered, though possibly because now I understand a great deal more of the inherent britishisms in it--pips, quid, eccles cake, the fascination with tea, etc.

Perhaps it set into place my weird lifelong anglophilia that was to follow? I was disappointed to discover that a lot of people have given this bad ratings because of what seems to be a comparison to the works of Terry Pratchett.

Well, I read this long before I discovered Pratchett, but I was surprised how well it has aged, and while all comic fantasy tends to get lumped together, this isn't really like the Discworld novels at all, so I consider it an unfair comparison.

Comparisons are odious, right? So, yes, I would suggest this novel. It's perfect escapist reading, funny but with heart, and with a truly marvelous cast of characters that I want to spend more time with.

What more can you ask for? Feb 09, Catherine rated it really liked it Shelves: own. Actually read in the Dead Funny omnibus but since the correct edition of that does not show, nor can I add it, I thought may as well have this incorrect cover as the other, especially as I did read the two books within a book separately.

Holt adds a couple of peculiar premises to a familiar tale and lets the puns fly. In this instance the Flying Dutchman has an insurance policy that could bankrupt the world, is wandering the oceans because he's smelly, and huge scientific advances have been made Actually read in the Dead Funny omnibus but since the correct edition of that does not show, nor can I add it, I thought may as well have this incorrect cover as the other, especially as I did read the two books within a book separately.

In this instance the Flying Dutchman has an insurance policy that could bankrupt the world, is wandering the oceans because he's smelly, and huge scientific advances have been made as a side-effect of trying to cure this side-effect of the potion he and his crew have imbibed.

The plot is, therefore, very silly, but just about explainable. Great fun, but decided to pause before moving onto the next book in the volume.

Jul 01, Judith rated it liked it. Flying Dutch by Tom Holt is a very silly book about Julius Vanderdecker, captain of the legendary ghost ship known since Wagner as the Flying Dutchman.

Indeed, Vanderdecker and crew have been sailing the oceans since the 17th century, but they are not ghosts, something they have come to regret, actually.

Having accidentally imbibed an elixir that bestowed on them both immortality and a terrible body odor that only lets up for one month out of every seven years, they have been driven out to sea f Flying Dutch by Tom Holt is a very silly book about Julius Vanderdecker, captain of the legendary ghost ship known since Wagner as the Flying Dutchman.

Having accidentally imbibed an elixir that bestowed on them both immortality and a terrible body odor that only lets up for one month out of every seven years, they have been driven out to sea from every port in the world.

I'm pretty impressed. His writing is very much in the style of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman clever dialog and storylines that nicely interconnect.

Most of the book exudes the care Holt took to mesh everything together. Unfortunately, the last quarter of the book feels a bit rushed: people don't stay in character, a main storyline and character appear without earlier preparation, and a sort of "then a miracle occurs" tie-up.

But, the book is written well enough that this "lesser writing" is still acceptable and the book as a whole is clever, interesting, and fun to read.

So, overall, I recommend it and rate it at a Very Good 4 stars out of 5. Nov 29, Travis rated it really liked it Shelves: sf-fantasy.

One of my favorite fantasy novels. Fluffy as all get out, while at the same time full of great ideas, and with a sweet bit of romance.

The discovery of an unusual file at an English bank leads a young bank clerk to the discovery that there really is a Flying Dutchman and he has been using their bank for years.

She then manages to track down the dutchman and get drawn into his quest to break his curse, which involves alchemy, the British coast guard and a lost cat.

Holt can be an uneven writer, One of my favorite fantasy novels. Holt can be an uneven writer, but with this fun little novel everything clicks and he earns his place on the shelf, next to Terry Pratchet.

It is a common superstition of mariners, that, in the high southern latitudes on the coast of Africa, hurricanes are frequently ushered in by the appearance of a spectre-ship, denominated the Flying Dutchman The crew of this vessel are supposed to have been guilty of some dreadful crime, in the infancy of navigation; and to have been stricken with pestilence Sir Walter Scott — , a friend of John Leyden's, was the first to refer to the vessel as a pirate ship, writing in the notes to Rokeby; a poem first published December that the ship was "originally a vessel loaded with great wealth, on board of which some horrid act of murder and piracy had been committed" and that the apparition of the ship "is considered by the mariners as the worst of all possible omens".

According to some sources, 17th-century Dutch captain Bernard Fokke is the model for the captain of the ghost ship. The first version of the legend as a story was printed in Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine for May , [15] which puts the scene as the Cape of Good Hope.

This story introduces the name Captain Hendrick Van der Decken for the captain and the motifs elaborated by later writers of letters addressed to people long dead being offered to other ships for delivery, but if accepted will bring misfortune; and the captain having sworn to round the Cape of Good Hope though it should take until the day of judgment.

She was an Amsterdam vessel and sailed from port seventy years ago. Her master's name was Van der Decken. He was a staunch seaman, and would have his own way in spite of the devil.

For all that, never a sailor under him had reason to complain; though how it is on board with them nobody knows. The story is this: that in doubling the Cape they were a long day trying to weather the Table Bay.

However, the wind headed them, and went against them more and more, and Van der Decken walked the deck, swearing at the wind.

Just after sunset a vessel spoke him, asking him if he did not mean to go into the bay that night.

Van der Decken replied: "May I be eternally damned if I do, though I should beat about here till the day of judgment.

This vessel is never seen but with foul weather along with her. There have been many reported or alleged sightings in the 19th and 20th centuries.

He was on a three-year voyage during his late adolescence in with his elder brother Prince Albert Victor of Wales and their tutor John Neill Dalton.

The princes' log indeterminate as to which prince, due to later editing before publication records the following for the pre-dawn hours of 11 July , off the coast of Australia in the Bass Strait between Melbourne and Sydney :.

July 11th. A strange red light as of a phantom ship all aglow, in the midst of which light the masts, spars and sails of a brig yards distant stood out in strong relief as she came up on the port bow, where also the officer of the watch from the bridge clearly saw her, as did the quarterdeck midshipman, who was sent forward at once to the forecastle; but on arriving there was no vestige nor any sign whatever of any material ship was to be seen either near or right away to the horizon, the night being clear and the sea calm.

Thirteen persons altogether saw her At Nicholas Monsarrat , the novelist who wrote The Cruel Sea , described the phenomenon in the Pacific Ocean in his unfinished final book "Master Mariner", which was partly inspired by this tale he lived and worked in South Africa after the war and the story of the Wandering Jew.

Probably the most credible explanation is a superior mirage or Fata Morgana seen at sea. The news soon spread through the vessel that a phantom-ship with a ghostly crew was sailing in the air over a phantom-ocean, and that it was a bad omen, and meant that not one of them should ever see land again.

The captain was told the wonderful tale, and coming on deck, he explained to the sailors that this strange appearance was caused by the reflection of some ship that was sailing on the water below this image, but at such a distance they could not see it.

There were certain conditions of the atmosphere, he said, when the sun's rays could form a perfect picture in the air of objects on the earth, like the images one sees in glass or water, but they were not generally upright, as in the case of this ship, but reversed—turned bottom upwards.

This appearance in the air is called a mirage. He told a sailor to go up to the foretop and look beyond the phantom-ship. The man obeyed, and reported that he could see on the water, below the ship in the air, one precisely like it.

Just then another ship was seen in the air, only this one was a steamship, and was bottom-upwards, as the captain had said these mirages generally appeared.

Soon after, the steamship itself came in sight. The sailors were now convinced, and never afterwards believed in phantom-ships.

Another optical effect known as looming occurs when rays of light are bent across different refractive indices. This could make a ship just off the horizon appear hoisted in the air.

There is a foot one-design high-performance two-person monohull racing dinghy named the Flying Dutchman FD. It made its Olympic debut at the Summer Games competitions in the Gulf of Naples and is still one of the fastest racing dinghies in the world.

In this version, the Flying Dutchman is a man, not a ship. The two-hour long film, scripted by its director Albert Lewin , sets the main action on the Mediterranean coast of Spain during the summer of Centuries earlier the Dutchman had killed his wife, wrongly believing her to be unfaithful.

At his trial he is unrepentant and curses God. Providence condemned him to roam the seas until he found the true meaning of love. In the only plot device taken from earlier versions of the story, once every seven years the Dutchman is allowed ashore for six months to search for a woman who will love him enough to die for him, releasing him from his curse, and he finds her in Pandora.

In the Pirates of the Caribbean films, the ship made its first appearance in Dead Man's Chest under the command of the fictional captain, Davy Jones.

The story and attributes of the ship were inspired by the actual Flying Dutchman of nautical lore. The —98 poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge , The Rime of the Ancient Mariner , contains a similar account of a ghost ship, which may have been influenced by the tale of the Flying Dutchman.

Dutch poet J. Slauerhoff published a number of related poems, particularly in his volume Eldorado. In Marryat's version, Terneuzen , in the Netherlands , is described as the home of the captain, who is called "Van der Decken" "of the decks".

Irving had already used the story based on Moore's poem in his Bracebridge Hall The Death Ship , by W. Clark Russell , was published in Fenton's ship encounters the Flying Dutchman , and an accident leaves him stranded aboard the cursed ship with her ghostly crew.

The captain, Cornelius Vanderdecken, tells Fenton that his ship, the Braave , sailed from Batavia in I looked at him as closely as I durst.

His eyes were extraordinarily piercing and passionate, with the cruel brilliance in them such as may be noticed in the insane; the lower part of his face was hidden in hair, but the skin of as much of it as was visible, for his cap was dragged low down upon his brows, was pale, of a haggard sallowness, expressed best in paintings of the dead where time has produced the original whiteness of the pigment.

It was impossible that I should have observed this in him in the mani-coloured lamplight of the preceding night. Yet did not his graveyard complexion detract from the majesty and imperiousness of his mien and port.

I could readily conceive that the defiance of his heart would be hell-like in obstinacy, and that here was a man whose pride and passions would qualify him for a foremost place among the most daring of those fallen spirits of whom our glorious poet has written.

The first novel was titled Castaways of the Flying Dutchman and was first published by Puffin Books in The second was titled The Angel's Command and was released by Puffin in The third and final book of the trilogy due to Jacques' death in was titled Voyage of Slaves and was released by Puffin in In the novel The Flying Dutchman by the Russian novelist Anatoly Kudryavitsky , the ghost ship rebuilds itself from an old barge abandoned on the bank of a big Russian river, and offers itself as a refuge to a persecuted musicologist.

In this version, the Dutchman is not a ghost ship but crewed by immortals who can only visit land once every seven years when the unbearable smell that is a side-effect of the elixir of life wears off.

Ward Moore in his story "Flying Dutchman" [30] used the myth as a metaphor for an automated bomber plane which continues to fly over an Earth where humanity long since totally destroyed itself and all life in a nuclear war.

In Craig Alanson's novel series Expeditionary Force , the Flying Dutchman is a large alien starship that has been commandeered by the human protagonist Joe Bishop, an ancient AI and a multi-national military and civilian crew - who named the ship.

Heine had first briefly used the legend in his Reisebilder: Die Nordsee Pictures of Travel: the North Sea , which simply repeats from Blackwood's Magazine the features of the vessel being seen in a storm and sending letters addressed to persons long since dead.

In his elaboration, it was once thought that it may have been based on Fitzball's play, which was playing at the Adelphi Theatre in London, but the run had ended on 7 April and Heine did not arrive in London until the 14th.

This imaginary play, unlike Fitzball's play, which has the Cape of Good Hope location, in Heine's account is transferred to the North Sea off Scotland.

Wagner's opera was similarly planned to take place off the coast of Scotland, although during the final rehearsals he transferred the action to another part of the North Sea, off Norway.

The libretto by Paul Foucher and H. The similarity of Dietsch's opera to Wagner's is slight, although Wagner's assertion is often repeated.

The tale was the subject of the radio drama The Witch's Tale broadcast on 1 February In the multiplatform game Alone in the Dark 2 , fictional detective Edward Carnby investigates a missing girl who he discovers has been kidnapped by the undead One-Eyed Jack who, in the game, is captain of the undead crew of The Flying Dutchman.

It appears within the Pirate Invasion as a boss enemy. The Efteling amusement park in the Netherlands has a roller coaster called The Flying Dutchman which features the captain named Willem van der Decken nl.
