We have the standard two winches for the jib and one for the main sheet. Catalina 30. I'm a big fan of using the handle then putting it back in the holder on the pedestal. Some crew like to leave it where they last left it.

My theory is that:
1. releasing a line fast is a safety issue that stopping to remove a handle slows down.
2. Looking around for the winch handle slows things down more often than having the handle where you left it last is helpfull.

What is your policy?

I'll guess I'll have to get over my obsessive behavior.
