If you are given sole control over the helm, you have both the authority and responsibility to course correct to keep the vessel and crew safe. A Captain should never entrust the helm to any singlehander that didn't qualify to have this authority.
P.S. The OP proved they did qualify in my book.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
