Making single handing easier

One''s feet can be as handy as one''s hands. I often give my tiller a good kick to leeward as I crank in the jib on my non self tailing winches. You can do it. Start on a calm day and work up. Remember, most boats will lie ahull. If you need to work on deck, you can always heave to.
