Jamel, in Western Australia
Jamel is a 32 foot Swanson sloop. she is my second yacht bought only last year and I'm still getting to know her.

Previous experience was a cicumnavigation with my wife in our Westsail 33 "Passage West" which over a period of 6yrs(1989-1996) we sailed from Fremantle to Bude in Cornwall and back. The memories of that wonderful cruising lifestyle thrill me to this day!

Jamel reminds me of the Arabic word for camel.

Did you live or work in the Middle East?

Jamel 27-10-2009 23:23

Negative, though it may look similar, camel = gamal /gəməl/ جمل
Original owner combined his grandchildrens names, James & Melissa, I think.

Talking about boat names ---- "Passage West" is a name that can be remembered. Did "Passage West" circimnavigate that way?

Jamel 28-10-2009 00:22

Certainly did, the name came from the original owners fathers home village " Passage West" in county Cork, Southern Ireland.
We took Passage West to Passage west and sent the photo home to the original owners in Australia and they were thrilled!

geko 28-10-2009 00:31

She would have been thrilled too.

Hope you stopped in Monkstown or Cobh just down the river . . . Passage West is a good anchorage but not a lot of yachting facilities there . . some good pubs though! Welcome aboard . . give us a shout if you come back that way again!!

If you click on Jamel's username, you can see his public profile, on that page there is a tab with contact info and I note you can send an email to him via CF. Of course I dunno if his email address listed with CF is current but you can always try.
