The Tasar has a variety of rotating mast which has to be manually pushed from one side to the other while tacking. This is done with a lever that is located just under the boom. The lever gets called the mast spanner.

Sailing the boat two handed this is not a big deal, because the crew grabs it on their way across the boat mid tack. Sailing singlehanded its going to be rather more awkward.

The Tasar is a nice boat, but I really don't think its going to be much fun to sail one singlehanded in restricted water.

Most difficult thing will be tacking the boom spanner on your own.

You can centre it and leave it fixed as a compromise though ?

Its very stable and not too much sail so may be ok on your own ?

Not really suited to ponds though - bit sticky in the light stuff

Couldn't post this in GENERAL soo.
TASAR dinghy   can I sail one single handed or will I be mostly swimming??
I have a fair bit of time in dinghies, and no sylph like figure!
Looking at an old TASAR without Mylar sails, I sail on a small duckpond, very variable breeze!
Currently using a Zoom ,but my knees don't like it!
Will I be constantly overpowered and dumping the main?
Any bodies input welcome.
