You will always need to head up to the foredeck anyway so its not obligitory to have everything run to the cockpit.

I am forever having to go forward to help the reefing lines when reefing. And the jib pole etc.

To make it safer you could set up jack lines.

I have one in the cockpit I can clip onto that lets me get to every place in the cockpit but not so far as to fall overboard

Going solo I just go a bit slower, think a bit more, and rehearse what I am going to do before I do it.

I just did the Med from France, Atlantic to Caribbean by myself and I did the video below for a bit of fun.

Have fun going solo
