We’ve expanded the range of our sailing logbooks, available on Amazon. You can now choose between four covers – 70s sloop, cutter, modern sloop, and helm. The contents are the same, the only thing that changes is the cover.
We designed the sailing logbook with modern navigation in mind, but it has lots of space to add notes for those who like to use traditional navigation every now and then – the notes section is huge! You can write anything you want in there. We plan to use this section to keep an account of any events, such as a pod of dolphins visiting us, seeing a point of reference, or spotting land. But who knows, we may try our hand at traditional navigation every now and then, just to keep it up.
Here’s the information you can record on the logbook:
- Origin and destination,
- Wind direction and speed,
- Tidal information,
- Ample “notes” section for each log,
- Passage summary with total hours, sail hours, engine hours, and average speed.
You can either write in ginormous characters in the middle of each box, or you can use the faded line in the middle to write two lines in each box. Each line is 5mm tall.
You can buy our very own logbooks here if you’re based in the UK. If you’re in the USA, you can find them here. They’re also available in other Amazon marketplaces – just search for “Sailing Logbook Ryan Osborne” on Amazon.
If you end up buying a logbook, the royalties we receive from the sales (£2 to £4 per book) will go towards our cruising kitty and boat maintenance fund.
