Re: Single Handing Made Easy - What Are Your Techniques?

I've been single handing, mostly 11 months a year, for the last 40 years, including many Pacific crossings.
Greatest improvements? A well balanced hull shape, wheelhouse and inside steering, roller furling, trimtab operating autohelm, simple reliable windvane, and lazy bags for the main.
