Three binnenjachten in May 1652

This one list of Zeeland ships and captains has three binnenjachten (inland waters yachts) but omits mention of the Dolfijn, which was in service in Brazil in May 1652. Actually, around this time, all the Dutch navy ships returned to the Netherlands. They arrived a few weeks after the opening of hostilities with England on 29 May, and some were lost. The three binnenjachten were:
Orangie         kapitein Frans Mangelaer
Maecht          kapitein Jan Janssen van de Putte
Zeeuwsche Post  kapitein Govaert de Moor

All three were from families that provided Zeeland naval officers.
