Most of our sailing has been done double handed but now with a baby, it's closer to sail single handed and I have an issue with our main halyard.
Right now based on our setup we need someone pulling at the mast to hoist it and someone else pulling the main halyard from the cockpit through the rope clutch and the winch.
What do you think would be the best practice to single hand the hoisting of the main sail. Trying to hoist it right from the cockpit is very painful and doesn't look natural and very slow.
Right now on our mast we have few cleats, no winches, no clam cleat or rope clutch.
