Aries Windvane in the Golden Globe race

2018 was an exciting year for Aries Vane Gear. It was the year of the Return of the 1968 Sunday Times Golden Globe Yacht Race. Retro, Solo, Non Stop, around the world. Two entrants, Mark Slats and Mark Sinclair were steered by an Aries wind vane. Slats finished second without any issues with his gear. Mark Sinclair Stopped in Australia, but plans do set sail again for the Golden Globe Race in 2021, with the same Aries.

Sinclair’s Aries is 40 years old. Still strong and unstoppable and will happily assist him with the 30.000 miles around the world. We are very proud that both Marks have an Aries on board as their best crewmember!
