    Autohelms can do this - they can steer with an accuracy that seems beyond
    any mortal. We have found the best way to steer downwind flying a
    spinnaker, or with the headsail out on the end of a whisker pole on the
    side opposite the main (goosewinged) is with one person not at the helm but
    with a finger poised over the unit feeding in one degree correction changes
    as necessary.
