You don't sleep?

Setting a kitchen timer and waking up every 20 minutes does not seem a good option on this particular voyage
I don't sleep. Single-handed I get good rest ahead and plan on a good rest stop at the end. Really not so bad.

I've done 20 minute naps offshore but would never do that in the Chesapeake or Delaware. Things change too often.

With two aboard it's four on/four off. Sometimes Janet and I do six and six because that works well for our sleep rhythms. Three aboard is four on/eight off. Cake walk.

Starting in Annapolis is great -- it's 26-30 hours to the Atlantic through the C&D and Delaware and 20-24 hours through the Chesapeake.

sail fast and eat well, dave
