Re: Sailing alone??
Or you can just have her take the helm while you hoist and set and douse the sails, .
x100. I found it is easier to have the inexperience person to take the helm, especially if you have the autohelm. I use hand signal to communicate with the helms-lady especially for docking or picking up the mooring ball.
No screaming, no yelling, and no cursing. If we miss, just go around. It is not the end of the world. I am amazed how many evenings have bee ruined because of docking the damn boat.
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
