Cape Horn Windvane


The Cape Horn (or Cap Horn, in French) self-steering windvane is designed and built by Yves Gelinas, the owner of A30 Jean du Sud. Here we see it installed on Kasia, #383, then skippered by Chris Katehis.

You can see the control lines emerging from the lazarette bulkhead and passing through turning blocks before connecting to the tiller with cam cleats.

Inside the lazarette, an electronic tiller pilot is connected to the rig for days when the wind is too light.


Cruising the Chesapeake: A Gunkholer's Guide cover Cruising the Chesapeake: A Gunkholer's Guide

My favorite Chesapeake Bay guidebook. While it mentions marinas, it concentrates on anchorages—the kind of places I prefer to spend my time. And in addition to listing shore facilities, it rates each location for Beauty/Interest and Protection. This is the guide you need to really cruise the Chesapeake Bay—a smorgasbord of small creeks and coves.
