Aye aye aye

Hanging with “the ass in the water crust”, is rarely meant positively.
But for serious relaxation on board a sailboat – that’s quite a positive thing.
The captain has two clear functions on board:
Cook for the crew during the day and then sleep.
Steer the sailboat through the night visually and instrumentally,
while the others sleep, their beauty sleep.
That is, they switched a three-hour support duty through the night.
Works very well as long as the crew loves the captain’s cooking skills.
So long there will never be mutiny.
