Re: Cruising Caribbean Single-handed
Thank you for your reply Zanshin. My only concern is sail handling, reefing ect., single handed in sudden squalls I've read can come up quickly. And, with significant more seas than these protected waters, there is the added rolling and pitching of the boat while handling sails. Have you had such experiences? Of course, always keeping one hand to the boat and maybe using a harness attached to the boat would seem wise. As you say, a good autopilot would be vital. Have you used wind vanes?
