Single Handed Reefing
I sail my boat primarily by myself. I would like to hear the best practice for reefing while out alone. I do have roller furling on the jib and I do have jiffy reefing for the main.
My question is the best way to set the boat while I am away from the tiller and reefing the main. On larger boats that I have owned, I have heaved-to, which worked ok. Should the jib be rolled or not.
If you put the tamer on the tiller and release the main sheet, will the boat stay head to wind while I am reefing?
