People, not sailing people, always ask us where we stop at night; do we anchor? Two in the cockpit - is my rule. I but not two asleep. On long trips (12-1500 miles) I like to have 6 on board. that gives us each plenty of sleep and we always have a fresh crew for emergencies. For 2 or 3 day trips - my wife and I usually crew by ourselves with three hour rotations.
