Re: Is sleeping OK?
6 6 5 4 3, what is that?, the amount of people on each watch of your micro managed crossing, or the hours each of the FIVE people on board! what? And how is that fair for the guy who does the 6 on and what? sounds like you've taken something as simple as raising a sail and catching a breeze across an ocean and turned it into the most difficult thing possible with dash of difficult to make it even more confusing for your " students".
I'm glad Garndpa taught me the Keep It Simple Stupid method.
The standard Swedish Watch as I understand is 4 5-hour watch in the 24 hour day, followed by 1 4-hour watch. I learned this on my first passage.
I would have thought you would have studied watch systems for your masters ticket. We teach various watch systems our courses.
