I sail my Compass 28 single handed. The trick is to take each manouvre slow and as easy as you can. I recommend investing in a tiller pilot; makes life a whole lot easier.

The most difficult part I found in single handed work was not the sailing, but the bringing the boat back alongside the dock/finger in the marina. Practice this a number of times in different conditions; again, slow and easy is the trick.

Enjoy and stay safe.
