Re: Is sleeping OK?

Those seem like good reasons to head out farther than simply the shortest course along the coast. The farther out you are, the fewer chances to hit fish nets, small local boats, tugs, etc. You also minimize the chances of running aground should your boat go off course after you fall asleep.
