Sorry, Bill, but in this case you’re wrong. A “Maramu” is the reinforced trade winds in Polynesia, at least according the World Voyage Planner by Jimmy Cornell were he writes:toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
“…in the trade wind zones, where direction is more constant, the strength of the forecast wind should be the deciding factor This is particularly true when there is a forecast of reinforced trade winds, known in Tahiti as maramu.”
It is possible there is a wind in the Med with the same name, but I have never seen a reference to it. Has anyone else?
The is also a village in France called “Maramu” but I don’t think there is any connection to the boat.”
