Trying to come up with a name for a boat can take a while. Sometimes we just stick with the name that came with the boat. That is what happened with our current sailboat, Baffin. I asked the previous owners what it meant and they didn’t know. The boat was called Baffin when they bought it and they thought it was bad luck to change the name.
For this adventure I wanted a name that was somewhat unique and also easy to say on the radio. Not too long, memorable, yet something with meaning.
Because this is a voyage to Japan, I thought a Japanese name might make sense. We are hoping to be in Japan for 2020, a year that makes me think of 20/20 eyesight.
Aha! Eyesight, Japan, guess what the Japanese word for vision is? Bijon!
