Re: Single-handed Sailing, So. Calif.

There has been some great advice already, so I'll keep mine short. I would recommend a Catalina 30 for single-handing. They are lots of fun, and can be had for very cheap. I have single-handed my C30, my C36, and now my CSY 44, which is a bit of a handful. As mentioned earlier, plan your moves well in advance. The most stress and work will be docking, at least it is for me.

Enjoy, Bill
