Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie

Op 20 maart 1602 werd de VOC (Verenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie) opgericht. Het doel van de VOC was handel te drijven met Azië. Omdat de Portugezen de baas waren over de handel in Azië vroegen ze veel geld voot specerijen en peper. De VOC wilde monopolie krijgen op handel met Azië en dat gebeurde ook. Eerst ging het heel goed met de VOC. Maar aan het eind van de 18e eeuw ging het mis. De VOC had geen geld meer en kreeg hierdoor grote schulden waardoor de VOC failliet ging.

Stuttafords escalators

One of my best childhood memories is our visits to the "big" stores of Stuttafords, O.K. and Garlicks with their escalator towers that seemed to reach up to the heavens.For a country bumpkin like me, just to "ride" up five or six floors was an experience in itself.

BOS 400 (HDR)

The BOS 400, a French Derrick/Lay Barge that ran aground while being towed by the Russian tugboat Tigr on June 26, 1994. The Tigr was chartered to tow the BOS 400 from Pointe-Noire in the Republic of Congo to Cape Town. The tow-rope broke loose during a storm and caused the vessel to run aground off Duiker Point near Sandy Bay. Despite several towage attempts, the shipwreck was considered a total loss as salvors were able to recover little from the wreck.
