OUR BOAT KASSANDRA 

Origin of our name 

The term originates in Greek mythology. Kassandra was a daughter of Priam, the King of Troy. Struck by her beauty, Apollo provided her with the gift of prophecy, but when Cassandra refused Apollo’s romantic advances, he placed a curse ensuring that nobody would believe her warnings. Kassandra was left with the knowledge of future events, but could neither alter these events nor convince others of the validity of her predictions.



Apollo, Apollo!
God of all ways, but only Death’s to me,
Once and again, O thou, Destroyer named,
Thou hast destroyed me, thou, my love of old!

A different version has it that Kassandra initially consented to sleeping with the god in exchange for the ability to foresee the future, only to break her promise after she received the gift. 
After being cursed, she was met with disbelief by her family and by the Trojans. She foretold that Paris, her brother, would bring about a war that would destroy their city, if he went to Sparta. Her brother did not believe her, and upon his return from Sparta with Menelaus’ wife Helen, Kassandra attacked her for the pain that was about to be caused. She also foretold that Troy would fall by a clever machination of the Greeks, the Trojan Horse, in which they would hide; her fellow citizens did not listen to her words, thus causing the end of the city. 

After the fall of Troy, she was taken by Agamenmon back to his home; despite Cassandra’s warnings about the plots of Agamemnon’s wife, Clytemnestra, he went back home where he was murdered by his wife and her lover, Aegisthus. When she died, her soul was sent to the Elysian Fields, a place in the Underworld where the worthy souls rested.
