About the name ORENDA

Orenda is the name of a book written by Canadian Author Joseph Boyden. It is a Huron/Iroquois term meaning The Spirit In All Things. There are three elements associated with ORENDA; faith, hope and gratitude. As the boat has three hulls I liked the physical association. Most of all, being on the water and sailing is when I feel most connected and grateful to all the elements in my universe. If you join me for a sail, then perhaps you also will be fortunate to experience the Spirit in all Things.
