After every time I sail, I come home and jot down a few paragraphs of my
sailing experiences. I also included how windy it was, the temperature,
the sail I used, where I went, where I am improving, where I need to work
on, the highlight of the day, how long I sailed, etc. I find this
information great when I go back to read it later on to compare my
improvements. It is also good to know what I can expect as far as
temperatures go. Anyway, I keep this all in compostion books (2 to be
exact) and that works fine. But now that I have this incredible tool
called a computer, I want to see what is out there as far as software for
keeping track of this data. Does anyone know a good windsurfing logbook
software package? It would also be great to have a calender set up where
you can view the whole year with each day marked as a wind indicator. For
example, if it was REALLY windy, the day would be marked green, sorta
windy- yellow, no wind red. I have been searching high and low for
something like this with no luck.

PS thank you all for the responses to the windsurfing vehicle question!

I'd LOVE to  know of such software too - for a Mac.

It would be perfect if this program was written as a
Java application because it would then be possible
to run this application on any computer plattform
that has a Java virtual machine!

I might try to write such a program...

What about using something like the "sign/view my guestbook" just convert
it to view my windsurfing log.
This software is found on many homepages sites.
You could convert some of the fields to windsurfing related stuff.
The best thing about it is that it would be easy to publish it on the net
so that other people could view your windsurfing log.

My windsurfing log is html based but I never seem to have the time to keep
it updated.
You can see it on http://home.sol.no/boyd

An easy way to do this on Mac or Win would be to use Filemaker Pro to
set up a simple database. This would allow for flexible search and
sort (i.e. how many days did I use my 4.6). I also understand that
Filemaker can generate web pages somehow...

A database is probably the simplist approach. Filemaker Pro would work
(and is advailable for both PCs and Macs) as would Access and others.
You could develp a report that would generate html for a web page.
