I'll chime in with Michael above, if this is one-on-one instruction in how to sail, then (depending on the instructor) great, the more tiller time the better.

But learn to sail first (if you haven't), then learn to grow two extra hands, two extra legs, and a clone of yourself. That's kind of what you need to make a good sailor into a good singlehand sailor.

Plus the psychological part where you can stand your own company, etc.
And don't forget the ability to see 2o minutes into the future to predict your next several steps and anticipate what is coming, especially in close quarters.

It's my happy pill
