Except perhaps for docking it, any knowledgeable owner capable of reaching the wheel could easily handle this boat when singlehanding. Just forward of where I sat at the starboard wheel was a bank of six rope clutches to control the lines led back from the mast and under the deck to the cockpit. Wrapping the main halyard around the electric winch immediately aft of the clutches, we hoisted the full-battened main with the push of a button. We then unfurled the self-tacking 100-percent jib. The halyard and sheet tails stowed neatly in a large bag in the cockpit. Putting one side of the double-ended mainsheet on the winch, we bore off, trucking to weather at 7.5 to 8 knots. There's no traveler on the 630e, so we cranked on some vang and eased the sheet, immediately erasing what was a little more helm than I found comfortable. We should've tucked in a reef, but we were having fun, and everyone aboard wanted to see what the boat would do on a reach. We weren't disappointed. The tall, fractional carbon rig powered us to 9, then 10 knots.
