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.

Shackleton's near-fatal journey to the Antarctic has received a lot of press in recent years. This is Shackleton's own account—quiet, understated, and riveting. It also describes the travails of the Aurora expedition, intended to lay the groundwork for Shackleton on the other side of the continent.
