Steve & Vanessa

The traveler is my favorite way to help reduce weather helm. Vanessa is only 115 pounds. When the wind picks up, she can have a difficult time maintaining control. Moving the main sheet car on the traveler track to leeward is the instant way to immediately reduce weather helm. If it doesn't help enough, then you are stuck going forward to reef the main. Most of the time, just adjusting the traveler is enough for us.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
