Video of Winnie doing her stuff!

This was filmed yesterday as we sailed in a Force 6, with the rig set up 'goose-winged' (main and poled out yankee on opposite sides). as you'll see, we were going well!

She will be a great ally during the transatlantic and unlike Constance, our electric autopilot, she seems to thrive in big waves. The steering wheel is locked off in the straight-ahead position and Winnie own rudder, mounted on the stern, does all of the work.
