Re: Some times things just work out...

Congratulations. It sounds like you've become more than competent-- lots of guys sail for years and don't get the hang of shaping their sails or learning when the boat "just feels right".
As far as singlehanding goes, I'm more comfortable by myself in bad conditions-- nobody to worry about except me. I also find I learn more when I'm singlehanding- no conversation and nothing to think about but the boat.
Great story.
