Re: How to sleep

Chances are, most of the trip will be sailed on port tack, so the starboard settee will be the prime spot... Unfortunately, looks like it might be a bit short...

If there's more than one off watch at a time, the only real alternative would seem to be the aft berth, sleeping across the head of the bed, with your feet outboard... As usual with these aft stateroom arrangements, it's guaranteed to place your head as close as possible to the autopilot motor and ram... You may have a better appreciation for one of the unsung advantages of windvanes, by the end of the trip :-)

Good luck, and have fun, let us know how it goes...
