CIRCUMNAVIGATION DONE – 33.000 SM

Hello Peter,
We are now nearing New Zealand (3 months & 2000 miles to go) and our Pacific windvane has worked very well since we bent the pushrod off South Africa. It has steered us 33,000 miles around the world, in 3 years, to this point.
Best regards

OVNI 435 VON LE HAVRE NACH TAHITI

Lieber Peter,
Nun haben wir schon den Atlantik und den halben Pazifik überquert und der Windpilot namens Petterson steuert unser Boot tip top. Wir sind begeistert und es macht Spass ihn und das Boot einzustellen.

Wir sind überrascht, dass es immer noch Cruiser gibt, die ohne Windsteueranlage unterwegs sind. Dafür klagen sie darüber, dass sie den Motor laufen lassen müssen, um die Batterien zu laden :=).
Nun haben wir endlich den Film über die Installation des Windpilotes auf unserer Ovni mit Badeleiter fertig. Die Idee mit der Deckelmontage hat prima funktioniert.

Die Montage auf dem Deckel der Badeleiter hat sich bestens bewährt.

30.000 SM SINGLEHAND AROUND THE WORLD – TODAY

Dear Peter,
You haven’t heard from me since a long time, have you?
But, today I just cross a key milestone along my journey: 30,000 miles of singlehanded sailing around the globe and I wanted to share this event with you. 30,000 miles of which probably 29,950 have been steered by « Peter » my WindPilot Pacific.

FANTASTIC is the word which comes to my mind when I realize the massive work « he » has been doing during these past 11 years.
Winds from 4 to 45 knots from any directions, crossed swells up to 6m, Peter doesn’t mind, keeping Goyave (my Ovni 36) on track with a terrific precision.

Who said that wind vanes don’t perform well downwind? Surely not WindPilot!

How much care did I give to this outstanding crew member? Nearly nothing! Of course, replacing the steering lines and the blocks a few times as well as the  teltale so efficient by light winds, but NOTHING ELSE in 30,000 miles. That’s incredible!

I have a little tradition, but please keep it for you ok? After each substantial passage, I make a toast of my favorite single malt with him.

All this to say how much thankful I am to you and my best companion.
Thank you some much for this brilliant creation, Peter.
Your most rewarded customer.
