SV Tapasya, Suzanne+Ron Metheny US

WHARRAM TIKI 38 selfbuilt in the US and circumnavigation for several years with the Windpilot Pacific at its aft beam, performing well during the entire trip. Suzanne+Ron sent this mail:
Hi Peter, Just a quick note. Tapasya our 38ft. Wharram cat sailed from the east coast of US direct to Antigua, down the chain to Trinidad, over So America to Panama, to Galapagos, French Polyneisa, Cooks, Samoa, Tonga, New Zealand. All with the Windpilot Pacific steering 90% of the way. Their is an article in Multihull Magizine (USA) Sept-Oct. 2005 issue about Tapasya that has a great picture of the Windpilot. We were very impressed and thankful for a great piece of German engineering. Tapasya is a gaff schooner over, 6 tons, and as long as I had her balanced the pilot steered well. Even under spinnaker the pilot worked well.
