ONE CIRCUMNAVIGATON + SIX ATLANTIC CROSSINGS + 18 YEARS WITH WINDPILOT
Today we had our Windpilot Pacific inspected by Harry Schank here in Horta. After 6 atlantic crossings and one circumnavigation it is still in normal condition. New in year 2000. Lasting quality!
We asked him if we should order new plastics, but he meant it should not be nescessary yet.
On our travels we more and more meet sailors with autopilots only. All having problems sooner or later…..
When we come home to Norway we will have a show in Stavanger Sailing Club in November. There we intend to put our WP on to a stand so that people may meet our best crew: «Herr Peter»
We found Harry a very polite and friendly person.
