Andrew Evans is a singlehanded sailor and author of THE book on the subject. All serious singlehanders have either read the book, or they will.
We discuss how he has his Olson 30 set up, foul-weather gear, tethers and harnesses, sheet-to-tiller steering, tying off the tiller, autopilots, tacking and gybing singlehanded, sleeping while sialing alone, meal planning for singlehanders, handling spinnakers alone, the mental challenges of solo sailing, and the rewards of solo sailing.
This is a must-hear podcast not only for singlehanders, but for anyone who sails offshore, since even sailors with crews might find themselves in a situation where they have to handle the boat alone.
