Bernard Fokke is named as the captain who sailed The Flying Dutchman.

According to the official Flying Dutchman website, the last recorded sighting of the ship was in 1944, off the coasat of Cape Town.

No doubt he was a silly Fokke to get lost.

In the Netherlands I am certain that tradition has it that the master of the ill-fated ghost ship was Falkenburg cursed to sail the oceans until Judgement Day.

I am sure that there must be other versions of the legend.
