Like T34C said having the jib in place ready to go up with even the halyard attached will make life easier. You will need a tie to hold it down until you are ready for it.
When you go forward the trim of the vessel changes significantly to bow down especially on a 22 footer. This trim change is what causes you to typically round up and therefore have to run back and grab the tiller.

Been there done that.
