This log book has been designed as an aid only, for the collection and interpretation of the types of navigational data and weather information commonly used by small and leisure craft when making coastal and offshore passages. The actual interpretation of navigational and weather information is the sole responsibility of the vessel’s master. It is recommended that a minimum level of knowledge, about vessel navigation and weather, equivalent to a Yacht Master Coastal, shore based certificate, has been obtained before attempting to interpret data. Note on marine VHF usage. In Ireland or the UK , if you are the owner of a marine VHF hand held or fixed set you are required by law to hold an operators licence. Bluesea’s will bear no responsibility for encouraging unlawful radio transmissions of any type by including a radio log in this publication. The Bluesea’s log book is an initial edition, in what will be an ongoing project. We would welcome any feedback in the way of comments, constructive criticism or requests.
