Two winds on a windless day

Henri Amel liked to name his boat models after the winds he sailed.

The boat on the left, Fiasco, is an Amel Sharki.  The Sharki is a seasonal wind of the Middle East that comes from the south and the southeast.  It blows from April to June, and again from September to November.

Peregrinus is an Amel Super Maramu.  The Maramu is also southeast wind, but it blows in Polynesia.  It often brings good, dry weather.
