New Sailor App for Yachting

Recently an iPhone/iPad app for GPS tracking and logbook keeping has been released. It's aimed at yachtsmen wanting: - a simple and systematic way to track and log cruising from harbor to harbor - a record of observations on wind, sea and weather conditions during cruising - analysis of speed, engine and sails set hours - free-text notes editable before, during and after cruising - display of current and historic tracks in lists and on maps

Price: US$14.99

The app may be used standalone, or connected to the optional website SailorLogBook.com that gives: - backup and restore of app data - access to automatic harbor retrieval - option to add images and crew - option to share cruisemaps - many lists and maps

Both app and website are fully documented with manuals and videos at SailorLogBook.com

Klaus Kyrsting, creator of the app explains: “I have been a sailor and programmer for many years. My first boat was a self-built mini-tonner (1979). My first program was in Algol: it printed a table giving volume of an elliptic tank as function of depth measure (1967). Since then I worked mostly with minicomputers and mainframes. But I find the iPhone a lot more fun, with its power, built in software and options. I'm looking forward to my next app!

“As a yachtsman I have always wanted to keep my written logbook up to date. Realizing there must be a better way of doing this semi-automatically and systematically, inspired me to make the system - first the website, and then the app. I have used it during a couple of seasons now.

“The template for the system is actually an old printed logbook - I use the same methodology in the app for keeping track of 'clock and log' and observations on wind and sea conditions, as in the past. Of course the app has a number of features the old skippers didn't have, like calculations and map display.”
