Single handed sailing-no autopilots/windvanes/tiller
I've been trying to find tips on what small lake sailors do when going out by themselves. All of the single handed info I've come across uses autopilots and windvanes which, due to frequent gusts and windshifts where I am, aren't usable.
I just wonder what people do to get the mainsheet up. The wind will blow my little boat off course in a jiffy even if I were able to lock the wheel.

A ship in harbor is safe, but that's not why ships are built.
