Sailing Beginner – Self-Steering Your Sailboat

In this sailing beginner article I wanted to discuss the self-steering rudder for sailboats. It seems that there are a couple of methods that are used to self-steering or what I call automatic rudder control for a sailboat.

I was glad I took care of that now instead of waiting until next spring, when I rather be sailing as opposed to fixing the lights at that time.
