How to choose this product

wind-vane-self-steering-system

Wind vane self-steering is a mechanical device which automatically pilots a sailboat without the intervention of a helmsman by orienting it with respect to the wind.

Applications

These devices are ideal for sailing long distances, especially when the wind blows steadily from the same direction.

Technologies

A large vane, or blade pivots as wind direction changes. A gearing system links it to a trim tab on the trailing edge of the rudder, which alters vessel heading as it moves. This maintains the vessel's orientation with respect to the wind, keeping the sails properly trimmed regardless of wind shifts.

Since the boat's course changes with the variation in wind direction, this system cannot completely replace an autopilot. Instead, it constitutes a useful complement which consumes no electricity.

Advantages

- Steers at a set angle to the wind
- Sails remain trimmed
- Does not consume electricity

Disadvantages

- Follows the wind, not a course
