longwaterline is on a distinguished road

Congratulations on a sucessful solo sail. Singlehanding is the best way to gain experience quickly since you need to plan out in advance every move with no one to scream at if things go wrong. Solo sailors tend to be better thinkers out on the water AND ULTIMATELY have superior seamanship skills. Get out as much as possible. Most crew don't have a clue which means you pretty much single hand most of the time anyway.
