Re: Is sleeping OK?
Seems to me that strict observance of all the rules and regulations is simply incompatible with single handing and in reality probably with double. Indeed in many respects , if not most, we choose to ignore what we in reality think of as tiresome.
Example ... according to local regs I am supposed to wear a PFD whenever I get in my tender and row to shore. Is not going to happen. Simple as that and not the only supposed best practice that I regularly ignore.
So think about it .... you are on watch, its cold wet and miserable and you are hunkered down in the cockpit , under the dodger, for the most part looking aft. Keeping a good watch are you ?
As Andre says, some of us will die doing what we love. Be that sailing, climbing mountains, racing fast cars or bikes. Such it is.
