Re: Is sleeping OK?
Thoroughly agree ... this idea of heaving to has whiskers on it.
I don't do much single handing anymore so the issue does not so much concern me but it seems to me that time and place is all important. To go below for a kip when coastal near shipping channels and/or ports seems reckless in the extreme. Out at sea not so much.
