Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom! Or at least for staying upright
Upwind is pretty easy; easier to feather up than foot off, of course. Downwind can be scary in breeze; boat powers up so quickly. Be very careful gybing that you don't turn too much and come out too high. Make sure you keep the sheets clear and keep your feet clear on maneuvers. As Ronrico noted, quick reactions and precise movements; just less margin for error. It can be done, and is actually good practice in case the crew falls off (and they always fall off when you need 'em most).
