Calibrating Speed

The holy grail of sailboat performance comparison is to sort out how fast it goes when we know what the surrounding conditions— wind and water movement— are.

A Digital Logbook

Since I was about eight years old, one of my hobbies has been to code, to make computer programs. I love the creative process, and also the off chance of finding some new ways of piecing old puzzles together. This post is about my small sailing logbook coding project.

EDIT (18.3.2021): This version of the logbook is now deprecated! For the current version, check this post: Charlotte – Your Digital Crew Member.
