Ovni 395 - Ode to Our Best Crew Member
“As you can probably imagine, there’s plenty of “thinking” time during long nights on watch and we came up with the attached…”
My name is Jane, I’m a Hydrovane
I steer night and day and don’t complain.
Come wax or wane,
Sunshine or rain,
It’s all the same, to Jane.
So in France or in Spain,
Or off the coast of Maine,
Why tax your brain?
Just trim the main, set the vane
And leave the rest to Jane.
Then without battery drain,
Nor stress nor pain,
She’ll take the strain,
Until you decide to steer again.

At the end of our 10,000 nm Atlantic circuit, I have to say again that we are so very impressed by the Hydrovane which is better than an extra crew member – I would never set off on a long passage without one. As you can probably imagine, there’s plenty of “thinking” time during long nights on watch and we came up with the attached, which you might find amusing!
