Summary: My Freeware sailling log software for the Psion

SAILLOG is a small utility primarily intended to track your personal sailing experience, based on the Royal Yachting Asscociationīs paper logbooks and qualification requirements. If you own your own boat, SAILLOG will also allow you to log the cumulative miles and engine hours of your boat, and gives you a reminder when service intervals arise. If you charter your boat to a third party, these details can also be logged in the vessel record without affecting your personal sailing totals.
