Sailing at night?

Im a long time offshore tuna fisherman who has been sailing bays, etc for the last few years on a Privateer 26. Im moving the boat to the Pacific side of things here and I have a question...(there are no stupid questions... )
On our Tuna boat, we drift at night...is this something that sailboats can do?
Do singlehanders use autohelms with alarms and try to catch 40 winks?
It looks dangerous to me yet, for years, we have done this at sea...
...thanks!
