Aventura IV’s Logs

Video: Aventura launch 26 May 2014

Aventura’s official naming ceremony took place in Limehouse Basin, London, as she and her crew get ready for their trip through the Northwest Passage this summer. Jimmy Cornell’s first boat, also Aventura, was launched a few miles away at the Royal Albert Docks almost exactly 40 years ago. In 1974 it was his daughter Doina, 7, and niece Marianne, 13, who performed the ceremony. Today, Doina’s daughter Nera, 14, and Marianne’s daughter, Lena, 26, took their place as the new generation.
