Hello Yves and Eric
(...) I have only been out for one trial-- about 2 hours and on most points
of sail in relatively light winds. The result: Wow! This thing is really
neat. Even on my first trial, I didn't have much trouble getting it set up
correctly. A bit of yawing when close hauled (once it over-corrected and put
us into irons) but I made some adjustments and all seemed fine after that.
Its too bad winter is coming because I really want to go sailing now!

It has been long time since I previously wrote to you from Finland. Sorry
about the long silence!
(...) But the most brightest moment was when I first time connected the
winvane and it started to steer. I just sat there and wished that moment to
last longer! (...)
The gear was manufactured with very very exact quality of measures and that
represents the professionalism! In the attached picture you can notice that
the waterline is high, becouse all tanks are empthy and the gear is not
loaded. Becouse the measures are so exact it was possible to made a bracket
straight to stern pushpit, which allows to fin tune the friction of bearings
with alignment and very clear and beautiful installation (...)

Just wanted to give you an update. I
installed the cap horn jean du sud on my Vega a few months ago. And
worked on upgrading other system for a few more months after that. But I
finally left Berkeley California and on my way South to San Diego,
I'm very impressed by the vane! Worked
fantastically the second I hooked it up! It's probably the only thing I
put on my boat that worked right away with nothing to tweak. So thank
you. I'm excited to keep on sailing around the world with it.
Yellow Feather Albin Vega, October 2015
sailing 33 000 miles single-handed around the world with the CapeHorn at the
tiller, I can say that it is indefatigable! I trusted it so much that in
light air, under spinnaker, I would climb up the mast to shoot some
pictures. Thank you Mr Gélinas for such a marvel. Without it, it would
have been impossible to complete the voyage.
Sylvain Fortier, Sigma 30 Loreline,
Hello again Yves!
Thank You again for the superb Cape Horn windvane.
I mounted the unit early this summer and in the beginning of July I tried it
in the Baltic sea for the first time. It took just a couple of minutes to
understand the function and it steers superb! A complete straight line for
hours…It seems to be perfect for my Allegro 33. It’s a perfect
help onboard when singlehanded. And so easy to understand. I took some
photos and a movie. Do you want me to send it?

Confidence, September 2014
The Cape Horn has been installed for a few months now. So far it has taken
me from San Francisco to Morro Bay. I'm heading down to
Santa Barbara shortly. It works in everything from barely any wind to 30
knots so far.
Here are some photos of the installation. I made a fiberglass gasket for it
on the transom and put some gelcoat over it to make it look nice and pretty.
I installed some preventer lines on the rudder that keep the rudder from
ever banging into the wind vane, as well as offer good protection for the
rudder against heavy following seas. I don't have it setup with control
lines around the entire boat, so I just tied some line around the adjuster
neck to add some friction as suggested in the manual.
Thank you again for the wind vane, it's a great piece of equipment!
Contessa 26 Freya, August
Just a note from the North Atlantic to say
how pleased we are with our Toucana. We have now
completed passages from Florida to Bermuda and from Bermuda to the Azores
and are currently underway from the Azores to the UK.
The wind steering has worked flawlessly on all points of sail and in a wide
variety of wind and sea states.
Thanks for a job well done.

Better late than never. Your installation is serving us well, the Cape Horn
is an elegant piece of engineering.
Jones, Tartan C34 JACOB NAGLE, January 2014
You will recall that Thistle is our 1980 Valiant 37 Esprit and that your
vane was installed around 2005.
(...) The vane has worked
perfectly. (...) We have now sailed from Seattle to
Hawaii to Palmyra to Niuatoputapu to Vava'u to Opua to Great Barrier Island
(NZ) and most recently on to Tubuai and Raiatea.
We never had to hand steer or use the autopilot, although we never had winds
over 40 knots, no seas over 7 meters, and only 2 days on a drogue, in a
total of 75 days at sea so far. Next we sail from Tahiti to Hawaii in
November then back to Seattle in June of 2014 (...)
We love our Cape Horn! Thank you so much.

These photos are about 8 years overdue but may be useful to someone. The
steering system is Edson Radial Drive. Jean de Sud is offset to one side of
the boarding ladder. Of note is that the transom tube was bolted directly to
the strongback structure that carries the upper rudder bearing. There is not
enough clearance in the lazarette to swing the quadrant upside down, but
with the stern ladder located beside the oar, it is a simple matter to
remove the oar. I think the servo-pendulum oar should be a few inches
longer because of heel geometry on starboard tack but in general it works
very well. Best money I ever spent on my boat!

I tested out your windvane steering here across the Gulf of Mexico last week
for 315 miles from Pensacola to Venice, on my way to the Florida keys on my
33 Morgan Out Island with hydraulic steering. I just marvelled at it!
Ha! Ha! Ha!!! I can't believe somebody could come up with something like
that!!! I'm 53 and made a living as a welder and pipefitter working closely
with engineers my whole career, but this is the cleverest thing I have
ever seen! I love just to stare at it and watch it do its thing . So I
don't have to steer, simply amazing. The thing is so well thought out.
Like I said, it has to be the cleverest thing I believe I have seen. My hat
is off to you. What a mechanical genius! Thanks again,

I have just over 4000 miles on the CapeHorn and it works perfectly.
I rarely ever touch the wheel. It is slightly disconcerting to guests
aboard, but they quickly adjust to avoiding the drudgery of the helm. I
think I am going to Mexico after the Bahamas but as my boat is named after
the God of Wandering who knows?

I just wanted to send a quick note to comment you on the design and
manufacture of an esquisite piece of gear, the Cape Horn Spray. It
was my great pleasure to unpack my new, (through Chad Carvey), Spray a

The workmanship and design are first rate and I am now looking
forward to installing and using it on my Hans Christian 43. Thanks for a

CapeHorn has finally arrived. I am very impressed with the finish on it,
It is very professional, compared to other products I have seen. It
looks as though it was made by a company that believes in its product,
you again for all the trouble you went to to ensure that I got it. It is
gong to be a pleasure using it. Kind regards
Received Feb. 2009 :
"I am so glad that I bought the Caphorn, I bought it as a backup to my
electronic autopilot for the Governors Cup Yacht Race, 1750+ nautical miles
from Cape Town to St Helena Island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean,
between Africa and South America. After the first day of sailing and using
my Auto Pilot, my motor packed up and I was left with no means to recharge
my batteries as much as the auto pilot consumed, so for the rest of the way
I used the CapHorn, it was marvellous, allowing me to get sleep while
racing Single Handed against crewed yachts, and still come second in
my class against these yachts.
It worked all the way, with me handsteering only in the lightest of
breezes below 4 knots downwind. The rest it steered, beating and
goosewinged, with spinnaker up, looking after me during
sail changes, the works, it was a real godsend, my mechanical, wind-driven
ship mate, that helmed far better than any crew member could have,
without complaining, requesting only a little attention and wind to be fed
I have included a few photos, including the one of Moments approaching the
Williams, Ultimate 30 MOMENTS
Written soon after installing the CapeHorn gear
will recall that my vane is offset about 18inches from the centerline.
I have been eager to see if this affected anything because it appeared to
work well inshore on either tack. I can now confirm this after more than
200NM in winds varying from 3 to 26 knots (with higher gusts) at a variety
of angles. We have even sailed her overpowered, close hauled at 18-20kts
(doing 7->8kts) with the leeward gunwale in the water much of the
time and the oar a long way out of the water! Even stressed like this, I
could not tell the difference between either tack. There was still
plenty of power from the oar to steer.
We have sometimes been in 30kts on a 400NM leg with usually only one
person on watch and single-handed gybing/sailing is easy. We have been
sailing straight into the trade winds for the past week (and another week to
go) and Flinders [our CapeHorn gear] has faithfully followed every wind shift. Today we were
double reefed and close hauled in 20+ knots and heeled well over. With
the offset vane, the pendulum was well out of the water but there was no
deterioration in steering efficiency. Likewise, the wash off the
mainsail seems to cause no harm ('though I am sure it affects the absolute
angle of the vane)."
CapeHorn is now about six years old and it continues to be the best addition we have made to our boat - ever.
That's the vote of my family! It has steered us through gales, storms,
knockdowns, dismasting & man-overboard in a huge range of wind conditions.
Recently, we were in dreadful weather with winds to 56 knots and we still
had the light air vane mounted (it was too late to take it off!) Of course,
the CapeHorn handled it all beautifully even though the vane was bent more
than a big banana."
"We have completed almost 20,000NM and eight years with our Cap Horn windvane
and thought it was time to summarize how wonderful it has been.
We bought it because our auto pilot failed us several times and we were always hearing
similar stories from other cruisers. We studied the market very carefully for
wind steering systems. There are many around and most owners liked whatever they
had chosen. The main things we liked were simplicity and the fact that no power was consumed.
Our yacht is 11.1 meters and though sturdily built, is relatively fast and light in weight.
Until we found the Cap Horn, we did not like the idea of all that weight on the transom.
We were struck by the cleverness of design in the CapHorn and the elegant appearance.
We made enquiries and Yves Gelinas was extremely helpful answering questions.
Not long after, we ordered our Cap Horn and were pleased with the effort that went into
building it specifically to match
the characteristics of our yacht. We were even more pleased
when it arrived and we saw the very high level of engineering and workmanship.
Installation was relatively easy and we have used it almost non-stop since then.
The system is connected to our rudder circle via lines and blocks which we installed ourselves.
Occasionally, a block breaks due to metal fatigue and we simply replace it- a matter of
a few minutes, even if we are at sea. Perhaps we will change block manufacturer one day-
t is a sharp bend in the metal of the block housing that finally fractures (after several years).
Apart from the occasional block breakage, the CapHorn has been the most reliable
piece of equipment on our yacht. Recently, we had our first problem when a bolt broke
where the quadrant attaches to the horizontal tube. This damaged the quadrant,
which is the earliest design and has since been replaced by a stronger design.
The Cap Horn company has quickly sent us a new one from Canada to New Caledonia
(where we have currently sailed from Australia). All they have asked for is that we
pay the freight. This is the most amazing service and almost eight years since we purchased
Indeed, there are plenty of companies which provide almost no service
even within the warranty period.
So, WELL DONE Yves, Éric and others. You make a fantastic product, at a realistic price,
beautifully crafted, elegant to look at and your service is WONDERFUL..."

It is that unobtrusive. I also installed a tiller pilot to operate the
system when under power. This worked flawlessly and held the course a lot
closer than I can. When I install my new GPS it will be tied into the tiller
Bob Shelton, Dickerson 36 Aequanimitas
Gélinas tells us he first designed the CapeHorn for his Alberg 30 but I
believe he secretly had a HC43T in mind! The unit is simple, elegant and
works better than all our high expectations. It has steered us from New
York to Australia with little maintenance and looks as new as the day we
installed it. It has steered off the wind past Columbia in 30 knots and
15-foot seas, anywhere from two knots to nine knots of boat speed under
spinnaker, poled out genoa and mainsail to the Marquesas. It hunted the
fickle head winds to Galapagos and performed remarkably in all conditions in
between! Of all the wind vanes we have seen on cruising boats over the past
2 years, the CapeHorn is simply the best looking."

Mary-Anna Cirlot, Venture Marine, San Diego
know I had previously sailed with Aries and Monitor vanes, although not with

someone says that their product is a work of art, and the best while being
the least expensive, their claims are usually met with some scepticism,
often deservedly so. Your CapeHorn steering system however has matched
your claims. When it first arrived, I marvelled over it for at least an
hour, partly for the exceedingly clever design you have come up with and
partly for the quality of the construction. Those welds are beautiful.
And there were two more surprises awaiting me : I arrived at the boat at
1:00 PM Friday. By Saturday at the same time, I was off on a test sail.
The installation was very straightforward. It would have taken even less
time had the boat not been swinging at her mooring.
The last surprise came on the test sail when I finally shut the motor off
and engaged the vane. I was expecting many many hours of tweaking and
adjusting and such. In fact, I was a little nervous about using it for the
first time. I had been looking forward to that moment for quite a while and
I didn’t want to be disappointed. Well I wasn’t! I engaged the lines and
off she went. What a thrill! I put about 50 miles on it that weekend and it
behaved beautifully. Bermuda feels a little closer."

Self-steering unit is wonderful! It works on all points of sail and
seems to excel when the wind really starts blowing. After our hydraulic
steering was disabled during a knock down on the passage to New Zealand,
our CapeHorn steered flawlessly for the next four
days in 40 to 70 knot winds. We were always happy with it, but now we
truly love it.' In my opinion no serious offshore
boat should be without some sort of self-steering gear. Auto Pilots break
and demand a lot of electricity. We especially like how the unit looks,
very unobtrusive, on the transom of Never Monday."
