Mine is eager to learn and could easily single hand our Ericson 35-3. She is working on learning the Caliber and we both practice single handing while the other is preparing food or doing some other task on the boat.

What comes natural to me after sailing for nearly 40 years is not as easy for her although she is very smart and understands most things sailing. If I were incapacitated, I know she could handle the boat just fine.

Soon she will have the confidence neccessary to handle the Caliber. It can be daunting though. We have 21 lines led into the cockpit with our cutter rig.
