Windyselfsteering

Windyselfsteering from Croatia.

Just wondering if anyone is using this?. Nothing found on internet about it. No reviews, nothing on forums.

Thanks

Mike

Do you mean this https://www.windyselfsteering.com/selfsteering/
It is from Estonia, not Croatia.

Re: Windyselfsteering

I've seen at least two here in local marinas but have no experience myself.
The guy developed it a few years ago right after completing his circumnavigation on a 31ft B31 and has sold a few
There are some videos on youtube

Thanks Mait,

They look to be a wonderful piece of kit. I just thought I would like to get someones unbiased opinion before purchasing one.

Re: Windyselfsteering

Hi, Mike,

There is also a wind vane steering system called Wind Pilot available in Europe, and probably world wide, if you pay for shipping, ;-), Scanmar have one, also Ares, as well.

There are different styles, too. Jim made an auxiliary rudder one for our previous boat.
