Same here, I keep a log only when cruising for longer voyages.
Daisailing, Weekends and Overnighting...... No.

Interesting that so many of you don't track daysails.. You still rack up some engine time, we like to keep a record of conditions, guests (and their comments) etc and it makes it easy to keep track of your days out.

On a rainy day it can be diverting to review the logs and reminisce about this thing or that place (or those people!)...

I try to log day sails too. What makes it hard is finding the time to do so, after the sail, the boat is put away, and everyone is standing around waiting to leave...

So, Faster, when, precisely, do you log your day sails? Do you do it while others are putting the boat away? At home?

Filling in the log is just another post-sail chore.. after the sail cover is on, sails stowed, lines put away, I usually take the time to fill in the essentials then. Often we have a coffee (or a beer) on board at the end of the day and that's a good time to sit back and get it done.

But you're right, sometimes there's a crowd itching to leave and I forget, but then it's done the next time I check the boat (usually twice/week).

Good for you Faster, I now have my New Year's Resolution...

My mother was meticulous in logging our trips on our first boat, a Shark, on which my family used to weekend and day sail, back in the mid Sixties. The logbooks are a treasured family heirloom now.

I'll try to do as well as she did.
