Recently I have been sailing in a public lake and as the year progresses I see fewer and fewer boats on the lake. Meaning fewer opportunities for assistance if something happens. Added to that I have seen Youtube videos of solo sailors falling into the water and trying to get back on their boat but the boat is sailing away and they haven't rigged a lifeline. I have a ladder and the boat should head into the wind and into irons effectively stopping the boat if I let go of the mainsheet, but if you are using the tiller tamer and cleat off your mainsheet isn't there a chance the boat can sail a fair distance on its own?? Has anyone rigged a lifeline? See any real need for one? As I get older I seem to be getting more cautious and tend to overthink things, thanks.
