How about a crew member who spends endless hours on the wheel, doesn’t eat or sleep, and never complains? A self steering system can steer your sailboat for short distances or ocean crossings with absolutely no power consumption. Will and Sarah Curry provide an overview of the different systems, how they work, and what they can do for you. Get a sense of what offshore sailing is like with video clips and personal experience stories too!
Sarah and Will Curry started talking about sailing to the South Pacific on their very first date. Will had already sailed thousands of offshore miles, but Sarah didn’t know the difference between a sheet and a halyard! Dreams became reality and since starting their ‘life aquatic’ in 2012, they’ve voyaged many miles together. They’ve been scared, been amazed, have made a mistake or two, but are having the time of their lives. Will and Sarah sold their first boat, SV Hydroquest (Beneteau First 405), in Sydney, Australia, and are now cruising and outfitting their second boat, SV Kaiquest (Jeanneau SO 43), on Canada’s west coast.
