I have owned Calismarde for about 10 years and have always wondered where this strange name originated. Despite much searching I have been unable to find out
Today Jane bought a bar of chocolate from our local French 'choclatiere' to share with some fellow crew members. I think she may have given us the solution to our conundrum. Calis is a beach resort in Turkey and Marde is an alternative way of saying 'merde' that's it....
Many people who have sailed on her may think this to be an appropriate description of the boat!!
