    When day-sailing in familiar waters, I just keep a medium sized spiral-
    bound notebook handy. I'll keep date/time entries starting in the front,
    and general notes starting from the back.
    Racing, or when sailing offshore or in unfamiliar waters I keep a small
    notebook in my pocket to record data as it occurs. Down at the nav table
    I keep a three-ring notebook with sections for various types of pages,
    depending on the race or passage:
     -- deck log for recording course, distance, wind, weather, sail changes,
        LOPs, and fixes
     -- sight reduction forms
     -- last Local Notice to Mariners
     -- race circular, instructions, course description, mark lists
     -- boat's performance polar diagram and tables
     -- always, plenty of blank sheets to write down whatever
