Re: Sailing alone??

I single handle a Cal 33 regularly. When you take your wife out, give her the helm. Me and my girl were in your position, but she likes taking the wheel. Now she steers and and I trim and everything else. Or you can just have her take the helm while you hoist and set and douse the sails, which is a big help. For me those are the most challenging aspects of sailing single handed.
