The name Abilyn is a combination of my daughters' names--Abigail and Dylan. Back in 2013, we commissioned a logo, which has been printed in vinyl and used on the physical boat. You can see pictures at http://www.abilynracing.com. The brief for the design was a logo that was meant to capture a feminine silhouette that embodies sophistication, power, and beauty, reminiscent of a classic Roman empress. This new logo will be used on a new boat, and want to evolve the design into something different but that embodies the same aura and qualities of the prior logo.
Note that the name of the new boat is "Abilyn," not "Abilyn Racing."
Also, the font used in the images above is Optimus Princeps.
Lastly, the design should not be overly intricate or include excessively fine detailing. The design should be such that it can be easily printed on vinyl for boat graphics and easily embroidered on fleece and other sailing apparel.
