 Windvanes 101

"During our sail around the world we tried many different types of self steering, and as we traveled we exchanged experiences and ideas about steering with other cruisers. Upon our return to Sausalito in 1977 self-steering became our business. Since then we have provided thousands of wind vane systems of different kinds as well as many autopilots. We have made a point of trying to sail with the vane gears we supplied as often as possible, and we think this has provided some rare experience of a type of equipment that is little understood."
