EUROCLYDON (yū-rŏk'lī-dŏn, Gr. Euroklydōn, from euros, the east wind, and klydōn, a wave). This term is found only in the KJV and MLB of Acts.27.14; it is translated as “Euraquilo” in NASB and RV and as “Northeaster” in NEB and NIV. It came down from the island of Crete, south of which Paul was sailing. It would be extremely dangerous to a ship with large sails, threatening either to capsize her or to drive her onto the sandbars (Acts.27.17).
