Re: Single Handing Made Easy - What Are Your Techniques?
I always hoist the main first. WHY well I have to be head to wind to do that and if the genoa was unrolled or the staysail was hoisted I would be beaten up by the clews and sheets.
So hoist the main, hoist the staysail then unroll the genoa.
My boat will not heave to without reefed main sheeted in and foresail [ either ] backed.
