I sail inside a wheelhouse, so the dry storage of things is easier. However, it still needs lots of storage places to stop things sliding about. I am continuing to increase the number of sheet and halyard bags, which double as bottle and bag holders.

I see here advice for a 3 plus crew and in other places the single handed sailor's sleep patterns are addressed. What advice is there for a sailing couple? This seems to require the application of the single handed sailor's sleeping routines but in a watch system for two. We are experimenting with night and day watch and off-watch preferences. I like the night, my partner the day, so the darkest of the night belongs to me.
