Hello to everyone at Hydrovane

I just wanted to let you know we completed the 600 mile trip from Gibraltar to Madeira using our new vane. Kept us on track the entire way in 25 – 27 kts.

We found that your advice on sail balance is spot on. Double reefed most of the way we sailed upright at 7kts with on the middle sensitivity setting.

Just as well we had him as my crew was seasick the entire way.

He was christened Simon – from the song You’re so Vain by Carly Simon.

Thanks for a great product .

Kind regards,


Tom Rolph
