Born on island of Anglesey ,been around the coast majority of my life . Sailing 40 plus years . Sail single handed vast majority of the time , having said that a good vane gear , aries / windpilot / monitor etc. somehow gives feeling of not being alone ! Live in west Pembrokeshire so fortunate in that regard . Wishful thinking has done a lot of ocean miles . Completed 2012 Jester Azores single handed challenge in my Achilles 840 Aries equipped in pretty tough conditions , boat coped well with up to 46 knots of wind with Aries at the helm .Wishfull thinking is equipped with a Windpilot Pacific vane gear , another good gear. Looking forward to event , hopefully in better conditions than 2012 .
