Yves Gelinas, French Solo Sailor, Cape Horn Windvane designer, on the Podcast

9 Jul

Here’s another rerun from Two Inspired Guys…new episode out this Friday, July 11!

Yves Gelinas of Cape Horn Marine Products was on the show last year, coming to us from his office on the Ottawa River in Quebec. Andy was in Sweden and Ryan in Pittsburgh, so it’s the first three-country podcast! Yves is a wonderful guy, a solo sailor, artist, inventor and businessman who gave up a successful career in filmmaking to pursue his dreams of sailing. In 1983 he completed production on ‘With Jean du Sud Around the World’, the film account of his solo circumnavigation via the Roaring Forties. The film won numerous awards following it’s release, and is still considered by many as the finest sailing film ever produced. Yves discussed that project with us, his philosophy on art, life and sports, and how he got into the business of designing and producing the Cape Horn windvane self-steering system. Check out www.capehorn.com to learn more about that and to contact Yves. Thanks Yves!
