Dutch Captain: Huybert Geel
Huybert Geel served the Admiralty of Amsterdam. His first name is variously spelled Huybert, Huibert, or Huibrecht. He commanded the advijsjacht Triton (12 guns) in 1672 and 1673. He fought in the Battle of Solebay in 1672, where he was assigned to De Ruyter's squadron. In June 1673, he commanded the advijsjacht Mercurius (12 guns). He apparently was only at the First Schooneveld Battle. Sources:
