After he recaptured Guinea on the English in 1664 he crossed the Atlantic to raid the English colonies in America. Visited the Caribbean islands, delivered supplies to the Dutch colony of St. Eustatius, and was engaged in Spanish-Dutch sea-fights and conquests. Giving the damage he had sustained at a certain moment he decided against an assault on New York to retake New-Netherland. He fought the English in the first three Anglo-Dutch Wars. His most famous exploit was against the English fleet: the Raid on the Medway in 1667. He sailed up the Thames to Chatham and burned three ships and captured the English flagship HMS Royal Charles, which he took with him back to Holland. It was a costly and embarrassing defeat for the English. On 18 March 1678 De Ruyter was given a state funeral when his body was buried in the Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam. He was succeeded as supreme commander by Cornelis Tromp in 1679. De Ruyters' flagship De Zeven Provinciën is being rebuilt in the Dutch town Lelystad. Cat.
