Re: docking alone

I almost always dock singlehanded, although in a much smaller, lighter boat.

I believe the key to leaving and returning is to decide which line is the last to release, or the first to secure, based on the wind speed and direction. If you can quickly secure the appropriate first line, you are home free and can attach the rest at your leisure.
