I don't know about you guys, but it's not unusual for my 'crew' to not be as interested as me in sailing. I'm of the opinion that it's time to single hand, heck I darn near do it anyway, why not go all the way?
It's weird, there aren't any books on it, an occasional article, maybe it's just confidence, boat set-up, and simply doing it is all there is to it?
So...what would you guys consider essential skills and equipment?
a) Leaving dock
b) raising and dousing sail
c) returning to the dock
Not talking about passage making necessarily, just a good day or an overnight including anchoring out.
What d'ya think?
