I also have my students go through a lengthy planning process in which they identify all of the aids to navigation that they expect to encounter with: an bearing on first sight, side to leave-to, location, light characteristics, etc.. We also have a couple of options for passes we need to transit with the safe times to go through, danger / clearing bearings noted, hazards identified,etc.

We do maintain a decklog with position, course speed, meteorological conditions etc..
