WELCOME TO CELEDON

PREVIOUS / NEXT

SAILING by KRISS on 31 december 2017

Celedon is the name of our boat.
Apparently it’s the name of a character in the Basque Country who patronises a famous event.
We had plenty of boat names in mind these last few months and some are so interestingly funny or stupid that I feel the need to share them :

- Grosses fesses (has to do with a Canadian comic calles Têtes à Claques).
- Big Mama (just loved the feeling but discovered it meant a BJ in Spanish).
- Titus (famous sardines brand).
- Thousand Sunny (One piece reference).
- Wind Blow (it’s on my Scottish tea coster).
- Mar Mood (no pun intended).
- Ikigaï (means purpose in Japanese).
- Slice of Life (all time Dexter fan).
- Zen Tao (there is a Andalus play on words there).

And I am sure I am forgetting a few ones ! Anyhow we decided not to change our Boat’s name because it’s said to be bad juju and there is a very lenghty and complicated procedure that goes with it.
Besides Celedon reads “It’s the gift” in French and we want to keep this.

Anyhow, we got her back safe early in the morning of the 21st December after 3 days at sea.
The first day we connected Torrevieja to La Garucha where we had to stop because of a loose water tank at bow that started smashing against the nearby walls at every wave.
We had 4 to 5 meter swell with 30 knotw of head wind.

Next day we fixed what had to be fixed on the boat and set sail the following day.

I discovered with amazement that we had a fantastic furling spinnaker that Amy decided we should call “Dory” because of the colors.

It’s been over a week having our boat at berth and we’re starting a gentle refit that we’ll definitely document on the Youtube channel.
Stay tuned with us, plenty more to come !
