In earlier times and up to about thirty years ago, many people favored a split rig, most commonly a ketch, in order to single hand. This kept the size of the largest sail smaller and easier to handle. Now, with all the furling systems, I would think that the best performing and easiest rig to single hand would be a cutter with both jibs and main furling. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
