JK3 Customers living out their dreams
Sailing to Australia
In ancient Roman mythology, Salacia was the female divinity of the sea, worshipped as the goddess of salt water who presided over the depths of the ocean. She was the wife and queen of Neptune, god of the sea and water.
The god Neptune wanted to marry Salacia, but she was in great awe of her distinguished suitor, and with grace and celerity she managed to glide out of his sight, and hid from him in the Atlantic Ocean. The grieving Neptune sent a dolphin to look for her and persuade the fair nymph to come back and share his throne. Salacia agreed to marry Neptune and the King of the Deep was so overjoyed at these good tidings that the dolphin was awarded a place in the heavens, where he now forms a well known constellation Delphinus.
Salacia was the personification of the calm and sunlit aspect of the sea. Derived from Latin sal meaning "salt", the name Salacia denotes the wide, open sea, and is sometimes literally translated to mean sensational.
“Congratulations to JK3 customers Stephen and Cynthia Everett on their new J/160 Salacia. Salacia was commissioned by JK3 for the 2010 PV race, and then set off to cruise the Pacific before heading home to Australia. ”
