Singlehanding days/weeks - what's your routine?

Ok those that have singlehanded long distance (say Atlantic / Pacific) what's your routine? How do you manage sleep vs wake times, keeping watch. What's the difference in your night vs day time routine?


thanks

This has been discussed multiple times before.
I sleep when I'm tired, AIS and Radar on watch, no difference night and day. I try to plan to be refreshed and awake whenever nearing coasts or high traffic areas, although the alarms keep me awake then anyway!

How long is your typical sleep? Agree that near coasts/shipping lanes need to be awake and alert more.
