It is fairly easy because all of the sails are in small packages, and when it gets nasty, you shorten down to the fore staysail, main staysail, and a reefed main. All inboard rig.
I have single handed other staysail schooners extensively, and it is the rig I most prefer for a larger vessel.
On the other hand, in light winds, or with sufficient crew, you can fly a cloud of sails.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
