History

VOC ship 'De Tijger' wrecked on a reef south of Sulawesi on March 4, 1650 when a convoy of five ships (the Tiger, Leopard, Bergen op Zoom, Aagtekerke and the Juffer) set off for Ternate.  All ships were lost, but the entire crew and most of the cargo was retained.

The remaining cargo was brought to Ternate by the Concordia yacht and the crew of the ships went to Batavia with a self-built ship from the wreckage, called 't Jagt van Vijven.
