The name:


The Hebrew word Timshel which translates as “thou mayest” – that gives a choice.  It might be one of the most important words in the world. That says the way is open.  That throws it right back on a man.  For if “thou mayest” –it is also true that “thou mayest not”.  So “Timshel” – Man’s Ability to Choose Between Good and Evil.

From East of Eden by John Steinbeck, also quoted in The Long Way by Bernard Moitessier.

Timshel was Oceanlord number 81 and built in 1994. She went straight to the Netherlands, and her 2nd owner was also Dutch.  She has been rigged as a cutter since new, meaning that she has a yankee and staysail rather than a larger genoa and has a strut in the middle of the forepeak berth supporting the inner forestay.
