Single Handed Boats Episode 175 Sailing In the Mediterranean Single Handed Boats, my thoughts on priorities

Single Handed Boats, my thoughts on priorities
I have given a lot of thought to what is needed for a single handed boat. In this episode I discuss what I think would be the top priorities to consider when looking at a boat for single-handed sailing and single handed boats.

Single Handed Boats should be easily steerable by wind energy with the backup being electrical self steering systems as the top priority.

with the backup being electrical self steering systems.

I also give a short discussion of what I consider to be the ideal rig for a single-handed boat.

My next consideration would be the importance of being able to handle the anchor by yourself from the cockpit and I described my electric windless set up.

Third is the ability to have storage space on the boat for the needed spare parts, water, food and comfort.
Also discussed is information on the Schengen agreement provided by Jonathan Wexler, and the insanity of the European union regulations regarding this matter.
Here is a link to my wind vane setup.
