Re: Sleeping as a couple?

So can I assume that the method you and others advocate for solo sailors is as safe as it can be, but you wouldn't recommend it for a crewed boat?

To be clear, I'm not "advocating" for any particular method. I take umbrage over your accusation that all solo sailors are "irresponsible." Certainly some are, just as some multi-crewed boats are.

If you'd just said solo sailors generally take on more risk, we'd be exchanging "Thanks".

The thread reads 'couple' not 'solo'.


Nobody here is advocating anything.


This is recommended by most offshore sailors that I know - do keep watch.


And when you sail solo, you must sleep too. And that's that, basically.


But, as has been mentioned, there are also couples that do not keep watch. I do not advocate this attitude.

Few sailors are irresponsible. I think everybody, a sailor or not, wants to live forever.

Re: Sleeping as a couple?

1st dog watch: 4pm to 6pm.
2nd dog watch:6pm to 8pm.

Set so that when standing traditional 4 on, 4 off (that's right, 4 on and 4 off running the ship and "working in between": maintaining the ship during your daylight hours off watches - except your Sunday afternoon watch which you got OFF) the watches "rotated" every day: midnight to 4am, sleep and breakfast, 8am to noon (lunch then work to 4pm), 4pm to 6pm (first dog watch), dinner, then 8pm to midnight. The next day 4am to 8am, breakfast and work to noon, noon to 4pm, work and dinner to 6pm, second dog watch to 8pm, then sleep to midnight. Then repeat . . . ad nauseum.
