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

If you have a furling genoa, and only one reefing point in the main, the only choice may be to drop sail and motor. My most comfortable heavy weather set-up on my Catalina 22 was to reef the main (I only had one reef) and leave a little genoa unrolled. The small bit of genoa didn't help with drive, but kept the helm more balanced. If winds picked up more, I would just drop them and motor.
