On the assumption that the direction of a galaxy's spiral winding defines the direction of its rotational angular momentum vector, 101 spiral galaxies in the area of the Virgo cluster are used to analyze the distribution of rotational angular momentum. The main body of the cluster is very isotropic, but ffie "southern wing" shows a marginal anisotropy. Key words: rotations of galaxies - clusters of galaxies
