Re: Do you sailor's keep a log book?

I looked at a number of templates and made up my own logbook sheet with items such as the wind speed and direction, engine hours, a brief description of the sail, etc. I keep this record after each sail and often put a note of some kind in my blog. I find it helps to remind me of things I've learned on a sail, and a way to jog my memory on items I don't want to forget the next time.

So far, I'm finding using a logbook a useful exercise. Perhaps when I'm more experienced, it won't seem as important.
