Auto Pilot? If you need Otto to steer for you while "otherwise engaged"; well you need more practice trimming your sails. Try "waiting" until you have her sailing with no steering inputs and then lock the helm with the brake or lash the tiller. Makes it more challenging and you also get to learn more about getting your boat to sail more efficiently.
You can do this without the "reward"; but it's more fun you have the goal.
