Bite your tongue!
That's a beautiful boat! I can see why you want to own her. I've crewed on a couple of brigantines. They make an excellent rig. One hand should be able to handle the aloft duties on a boat that size. As far as tacking and gybeing, it's not any more complicated, just a little different. You won't be able to point quite as high, but all other points of sail, well, just look at how much sail you have high up there, where it counts!
Feel free to PM me if you have questions.
