Named for the yacht in which Kyoko Imakiire {see planet  (5432)} made her solo non-stop voyage round the world in 1991-1992. ‘Kai’ means’ sea’ or ‘Ocean’ and ‘Ren’ means ‘Connection’, Kairen being a yacht that therefore connects the seas and oceans of the world. Kairen also symbolizes Imakiire’s parents, the name of her mother Umiko meaning ‘a child of the ocean’ and the Chinese character for the name of her father Muraji also being pronounced as ‘Ren’.
