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

My Centaur can hove to nicley with just a bit of the head sail furled out.
In heavy weather I reduce both sails progresivly, have only a single reef main but it also rolls away on the boom but not a great shape so anything much over 20knt and its the iron main and a quick dash for the nearest harbour.
Safe sailing
