Steve & Vanessa

I bought cape horn though the last group buy. On our cruise, it was invaluable. I think the only gear on board I appreciated more was out expensive foul weather gear (also invaluable).

The Cape Horn sailed us the whole way on the New Jersey stretch from Great Kills, NY to Cape May in 25+ knots of wind and big rolly seas with no problem. It got a real work out in similar conditions with shorter waves in the Chesapeake. I find it useful in winds 12-15 knots and up. Less than 10, and we aren't sailing much anyway.

I rigged lines to the cockpit, allowing us to make course changes or adjust to conditions with out getting out from under the dodger and bimini.

Great piece of gear!!!
