2 person watch schedule

My wife and I on a recent cruise did this.I did the Midnight till dawn watch usually about 7:00AM she took the watch after fixing coffee and some grub. Then I would get a few hours of sleep and wake to eat lunch and take the noon to 6:00PM watch and do some maintance which she would have to take the wheel sometimes. I found she needed a little more rest than me and so I felt good about taking a bit more of the watch time than her.So it was an even split and I have a nighttime gig where I take a pillow and blanket and wrap up and if I lay in a spot where I can fix on a star cluster I can tell if I am holding my course or not and I get some rest with maybe only some zig zag but with GPS it is not a big deal. Or like Capt. Ron says just pull over and ask directions.
