Re: gps track without sailing log

Hey Mayday: thanks for the logs. You can definitely do a gps track without doing a sailing log. There is a lack of logs from the Comox area so doing one is always useful to others on the site, but it’s totally up to you. They are gps summary plots here where you can track progress: https://bigwaveda...
