I'm very new to all of this, but I have found that taking time to think out next moves is key. When I first started sailing I had no idea how I would leave and hit moorings, docks, etc... single handed... but now just by planning my moves ahead of time, moving steady and not rushing, and stopping to think about conditions I seem to get through most tight spots without much trouble.

I like SurfEsq's comments... it's true, you end up single handing even when you have a crowded boat!
