So, did you sail it back home as well then?

And how much did it take to get used to napping at night rather than sleeping for hours?

Re: Single-handed sailor Guido

@Rustic Charme
Yes i did the whole journey around the atlantic.

Sleeping is - of course - always a problem if you are sailing alone. To be honest i never got used to sleep in 20 minute intervalls like i have been told beforde so many times. I think its impossible to stay in good shape if you try to do that for weeks. In fact i slept usually for 1 or 2 hours if possible in a row. so you have to trust in your AIS system (and god) a bit :-)
