First off - get a boat that is designed to be single Handed

1) Lead lines to cockpit
2) self tending jib
3) jackstays

4) furling headsail
5) single line reefing

Skills good to have
6) humility ( know when not to go out )
7) hove-to
8) sail onto a dock or mooring
10) trim sails so the boat steers itself steady w/o autopilot
