Changing course

Changing course without changing tack
Turn the top of the vane mast to the position needed for the next course. If you want to change to be more than lets say 5-10 degrees you may need to adjust the position of the chain on the chain hook.

Tacking or gybing

  1. Turn the windvane to the position needed for the next course. The boat will slowly start turning.
  2. Disconnect the chain from the chain hook.
  3. Tack or gybe the boat as you normally do.
  4. Reconnect the chain to the chain hook.
  5. Adjust the mast and chain as described previously.
