160 days windsurfing freestyle and waves
44 days just surfing
70 days off due to injury
There were other days I could have been on the water but I was too buisy taking Photos both surfing and windsurfing.

2006 was not a bad year just counted up the days in my diary.

interesting.. But until now it's a quite little reseach... Aren't there any others who writes in a log when they have been on the water??

I started keeping a sailing log nine years ago...pretty basic. I list where I sailed, what gear I was on, who I sailed with, what technique I worked on etc. It's also great for making notes about gear maintenance, rigging notes etc. I can't tell you the number of times I have flipped through an old sailing diary and discovered some note to myself that I'd forgetten but needed to know!

I log all of my sessions including GPS data.

2005 - 52 days
2006 - 59 days

Formula 70% of the time.

It's hard to get more time on the water with a "regular" full time job.

For a number of years I regularly maintained a sailing log identifying where I sailed, the boards and sails used, time sailed and a brief comment or two about the conditions. At that time I was averaging 100-125 days a year, and that was balanced working 50-55 hours a week. Surprisingly, now that I'm retired, I'm actually sailing a bit less. Maybe in the range of 75-90 days a year. Being the beginning of the year, it's a really good time start a sailing log again. It's a good habit to develop, especially since its tough to remember much weeks or months later.

70 days. Slalom (blasting & the turny bits) only.
Over 9 months of the year (ie. when not wobbling down the ski slopes)
TOW per session about 3 hours.
Don't keep a log nor do I do GPS.
If I did have a log it would parallel local wind and temperature conditions (or if I worked it would be affected by that routine) and any time out doing other sporty things (like working on base fitness).

Averaged 76.5 days in 1995 through 2006 (highest number was 108, lowest was 57). That includes 5-10 days a year sailing on snow or ice with a windsurfing rig attached to a modified toboggan.

January 9th was my 4th day this year.
