I generally wrap the line around the winch using one hand... the one holding the standing part, that is applying tension to the sheet. If you use two hands, the way you're describing it, and the boat lurches, you might actually trap the right hand or fingers against the drum if your body moves. Also, the way you do it, you don't have any way of holding onto the boat... which is generally not a great idea.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
