Re: Tips on Watch Standing
There is a tendency to think about watch length from the perspective of the watchstander. That isn't nearly as important as considering it from the perspective of the off-watch. The off-watch HAS to get enough rest to be effective. Two hour stints aren't enough for most people. 4-on/4-off can be maintained for a long time. 4-on/8-off can be maintained indefinitely.
sail fast and eat well, dave
beware "cut and paste" sailors.
