Corbin 39 Single Handed

Anyone with recommendations as to alterations/additions to enable smoother singlehanding a Corbin 39?

Re: Corbin 39 Single Handed

We sailed in the company of a Corbin 39 from Thailand through the Red Sea and up to Egypt. It was a good sailing boat, and it was sailed by a couple, which is like sailing singlehanded as one person does most of the work to keep the boat moving. Impressive yacht.

Re: Corbin 39 Single Handed

Sorry to be off topic with this link but it's a corbin 30 facebook group so you might find more singlehanding info there to. https://www.facebook.com/groups/267918719952161/
I have a corbin also and would be interested to see setups for singlehanding. Thanks for the photos Agape39.

No problem, with this setup I can tack all three sails by myself, of course with autohelm. I need to upgrade two more winches to self tailing but other than that it's fairly smooth.

P.S. I also have a furled main and headsails so that makes it much more possible.
