Re: U.S.-Bahamas, Crossing the Stream

I think you are pushing your crew with that watch schedule, might be ok for a day or two any longer and you will have fatigue setting in. you might want to try something like 3hr helm, 3hr assist, 3hr sleep or in 4hr blocks. that way the same person won't have the overnight watch all the time. That is the schedule we use when transporting with a 3 or 4 person crew and it seems to work out.
Also remind your crew that even thou the sun is out never ever pass up a chance to sleep .
We will be headed south on Persistance - Person 36 on Nov.1 from Westbrook Ct
