The famous sea legend of the Flying Dutchman® tells the story of an 18th century Dutch sailing master who scorned God for giving him ill winds on his voyage. For scorning God, he was condemned to sail the seven seas without rest – allowed to go ashore only every seven years to seek his salvation. His salvation would be a woman who would be faithful to him 'til death. Did he find such a woman?
Even today, many sailors swear that on foggy nights they've seen the Dutchman's ghost ship with black mast and red sails drifting slowly past them. These reports have come from all parts of the world. Who would deny a sailor's tale?
