Who is the Flying Dutchman?

According to researcher Theo Meder, a merchant ship named De Kroonvogel regularly sailed between present-day Java and Amsterdam. Its captain, Hendrik van der Decken, was a reckless flunky who had no regard for the safety of the ship or the crew, and in all weathers he sailed the dangerous route between the cliffs of the Cape of Good Hope to cut the voyage time from 8 to 6 months, but even that seemed long. One evening in 1641, it was while sailing along the Cape of Good Hope that a mysterious figure appeared aboard De Kroonvogel and the captain sold his soul in exchange for the ability to sail over rocks, upwind and downwind, and always with sails taut. And indeed. The ship made the next voyage in an incredibly short time. The captain became a famous and wealthy man. A statue was erected in his honour on Kuiper Island as the only captain who managed to reduce the sailing time to 3 months. But after 7 years, the contract expired and the devil came for his reward. Since then, the captain nicknamed the Flying Dutchman has plied the waters of the seven seas without ever being able to dock in port. Sailors who have encountered the terrifying spectre at sea have said that the ship always sails under full sails that look like shreds of fog, with the captain standing on the bridge holding a scroll with a treaty that he is trying to pass on to other unfortunates. So far, however, there has been no one brave enough to take the scroll from the captain. Word quickly spread among sailors of the captain's fate, and his statue on Kuipe Island near Batavia harbour was pulled down.

From the logbook of Prince George Frederick of Wales, later King George V of Britain.

'On the 11th of July 1881, at four o'clock in the morning, the Flying Dutchman appeared before our bow. There was a strange red light coming from the ship. The masts were as if on fire, the spars and sails were plainly visible, although the ship was two hundred yards away. The crew were terrified, and no one uttered a sound until the strange spectre was subdued by the darkness."
