Sailing SV Jelani
Jelani means mighty warrior in Swahili and is a symbol of strength. We wanted to choose a powerful name for our SV knowing we are facing the unforgiving sea that will push our limits every chance it gets.
Why The Helia 44?
Clive has been sailing and racing monohull sail boats since he was 12 living in South Africa. When faced with the decision of what type of sail boat to purchase, he felt a Catamaran would be a better fit for cruising offering more room, comfort and better performance when sailing across oceans. He ended up deciding on a Fountaine Pajot because of their reputation for solid construction and cruising performance. We opted for the owner version of The Helia 44 which has one hull designated as a Master suite. The other hull comprises of two separate cabins which are conducive to giving our guests privacy and more room.
