I sail my Alberg 35 singlehanded sometimes. Halyard and reef lines at the mast; roller furling 135% jib. I have an electric autopilot on the wheel with a wired remote. ALWAYS tethered, PFD also. I'm working on a ladder deployable from the water and just bought a water proof hand held vHF that will be clipped to me (Standard Horizon HX 851). The biggest thing is that everything must be planned ahead, I probably sail more conservatively alone. Docking is the biggest challenge of all; I'm out of Anchorage Marina and there is generally no one to help. I basically try to get into the slip and stop and then get a line on instead of trying to get there and tie off at the same time. Mostly sail the Patapsco so far, hoping to cruise for a few days singlehanded this summer.
