whats a good watch schedule?

For such a short passage there really is not an ideal schedule. Offshore we tried to keep 2 6''s during the day and 3 4s at night, alternating the mid watch. I suggest that you catnap as often as possible and when one is feeling drowsy wake the other. The best answer would be to get one additional person and do 3 or 4 hours watches. Fair winds
