Windvane self steering handbook


A self steering system can not see or judge a situation.

No matter what kind of self steering system is used, the boats skipper is always responsible for everything regarding the safety of the boat!

While using a self steering system you must always be ready to disconnect the system and steer the boat manually.

But keeping that in mind, windvane self steering is a joy to use. Once it has been set up correctly, it will vree you from sitting at the helm constantly, thus giving you time to get a drink, prepare something to eat, put in a reef, stuff like that. If you are starting out everything may be a bit overwhelming. This part of the website is to give you a step by step guide to help you get the best steering from your system.
