De Nieuwe Haarlem, carries a legend filled with bravery, adventure and perseverance. As one of the VOC’s (Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie) fleet it ploughed the oceans between continents at a time when the VOC was the world’s first and mightiest multi-national corporation. From the VOC’s headquarters in Amsterdam it transported high company officials to far-away colonies. When it floundered in bad weather and ran aground near Table Bay in 1647 the heroic crew’s survival and exploration of the vicinity led to the establishment of a halfway station by Jan van Riebeeck on April 6, 1652, that ultimately led to the founding of South Africa and the first vines being planted in the Cape.
