Also, a key thing to do is to get as much time in on the boat under varied conditions—light air, heavy air, calm seas, confused seas, etc—so you will have a good idea of how she will react in a given situation. The more familiar you are with your boat, and the more experience you have with her, the easier it will be to single-hand.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
