I really enjoy sailing single handed from time to time with a suitably cautious approach and moderate conditions. My priority is to make absolutely sure everything is rigged and running correctly before I set off. I often sail with just a reefed main and have no concerns about using the storm jib if I want a bit of headsail up. Adding headsail reefing/furling is a priority for me this year which I hope will be a great benefit for any future single handing trips.
Let us know how you get on.
