Sailing Vessel Jane Doe
It's the time of year that sends me and quite a few pals onto the road hauling our boats to various rendezvous and regattas. Meaning: I will be making stacks of nautical-me-hearty words in the blog in the next few weeks, so in the meanwhile, some pictures to set the stage...
The annual survey to find out what people were naming their boats, the one from BoatUS, used to disappoint me. The same old usual suspects: Odyssey, Mistress, Irish Eyes, Serenity (or Sea-renity, natch), Osprey, Wet Dream.
So I stopped reading it, and instead keep an eye out for those less common and possibly more appropriate name options that reveal something about the character of the owners, whether it's humor, vulgarity, honesty, maybe a smidge of exaggeration.

I've seen a racing dinghy online which must be seriously fast , as it was named Usain Boat. Probably at the opposite end of the fleet , another great name not only sums up the owner's expectations but it also makes me grin like a 12 year old schoolboy .... Norfolk Echnants.
