Check your log book.....

So here it is, another year gone by. I thought I'd check to see how everyone did in 2007.

We had an "off" year, for reasons that some of you know, and managed only 56 days, 42 overnights in the log book for 2007. Previous few years have been over 80. However we are pleased that we managed that.

We did manage to spend New Years eve aboard, light airs on the sail over to Snug Cove, forecast gale to storm warnings that never really materialized, the best we got was the tail end of an overnight outflow in Howe Sound. Great party and New Years breakfast, though.

I often wonder what the average is, I suspect that anyone here will chime in with generally above-average numbers given the keeness and dedication of most of the posters.


So... How'd you all do last year? Do you hope to do better in 2008?

That's enviable Faster, we only spent 15 nights onboard. The boat was in the paint shop until July, so we lost the early part of the season when I'm not so busy at work. This year we are hoping for a lot more time in the new boat (if I can get it out of the shop).

A late start on the season (bought the boat in Feb and had some work to do before I would sail her), a month at the riggers, a month in alaska on vacation, promotion at work. Heck I was lucky to get out 30 times or so this year, almost half of that on other peoples boats too.

We launched and were sailing mid to late in April. Hauled out November 1st.
Had a full 6 month season, for my local on the Great Lakes, thats not bad.
We were on board every weekend. I don't belive we missed any. The weather was pretty good all season, I don't recall to many weekends being a wash due to weather.

I don't have exact numbers, but with all the daysailing, weekend overnighting and a couple of our typical weeklong cruises; our guess is that we logged right around 1,000NM's.

It was a great season; next year we look forward to a few more NM's.
The plan is to cruise more and less daysailing/weekending.
I have already started planning some of our cruises.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

We had a great year now that the Admiralís health is back and logged well over 1,000 nm this year.

Also, participated in our 1st offshore race from Galveston to Corpus Christi. It was 150 nm and with the light air we finished 45:46:36 hrs. It didnít bring home any metal but was a respectable 14th out 52 boats in our division.

While I keep a log when on a "cruise", I have not done so for daysails or even overnighters in "known" areas. I know there are regulations about keeping a log, and also good seamanship practices (hence a log if I am at all concerned about conditions or destinations), but to keep a log for every sail seems onerous to me. What do others do?

This past year was a good year for sails with family, and getting to know our "new to us" boat a bit better. With retirement in summer, 2008, I'm looking forward to lots more time on our boat in BC coastal waters.

I'm grateful and surprised that I got to sail so much this year, considering the huge amounts of hours I put in on a certain airplane program...

3 overnighters to Poulsbo and downtown Seattle with my kids and their friends
1 week in the San Juans with my wife while the kids were at camp
1 week in the San Juans and Gulf Islands with the whole family
1 week in the San Juans and Puget Sound with my father and a friend

Numerous day sails and "Dinner Cruises" across the Sound to Kingston

I "decommissioned" the boat on Tuesday. I now intend to complete many of the repairs and maintenance that I deferred in lieu of sailing last year. A good choice, I think!
