Pretty much from my limited experience. I tried sleeping with my head upwind and feet downwind but I slowly slid down the bed till I was kind of kneeling in a prayer position. Not the most comfortable way to wake up.

Re: How do you sleep?

Thank you all. Really useful feedback.

I have the feeling that I should not make it a major criteria for selecting our boat. Like several said when it's rough or when under sail there are plenty of other options on a boat to find a comfortable sleeping position ... including hammocks.

Re: How do you sleep?

For the exact same reasons I purchased a Martz 35/Martzcaft 35.....across beam double bed in a MASSIVE aft cabin.......quite a few in Australia......heaps of storage.......centre cockpit too.....one vessel did a sub polar circumnavigation........mine has every bell and whistle for a return voyage from the Gold Coast Queensland Australia to the Philippines.....but health put a stop to that.......hence or sale....

Re: How do you sleep?

First I am not very experienced, so take that in account
But, I think this whole rolling at anchor thing is way over stated, Rarely have I ever had rolling at anchor be a real issue, only once really and it was in a channel with a lot of current that I believe had the wind and waves at 90 deg to the current. It was actually before the bridge in Clearwater, stupid place to anchor but we arrived very late at night and I didn't feel up to playing with unfamiliar shallow waters.
Anyway at least for me it's a pitching motion that is more likely as usually the boat at anchor is bow into the wind and waves, so not being oriented fore and aft would have me rolling.
Passage making I sleep where and when I can, usually in the cockpit and or in the settee, rarely in the bunk.

As I said I'm not that experienced, just a weekend warrior at this point, but I don't think rolling at anchor is nearly as frequent as some would have you believe.
