Notes:

1. Latitude/longitude, including for days in port, show representative decimal positions for each day, as calculated by the Old Weather project's analysis program. As such, they differ by varying amounts from the positions recorded, usually at noon, in the log pages. In addition, some latitudes/longitudes have been amended in edited logs for errors in the logs, for errors in identifying locations by the analysis program, or simply for greater accuracy. In all cases, refer to the log-page scans for the positions as originally recorded. Not all log pages contain this information and the ships' positions have therefore often been estimated.

2. Full account of any day is available by clicking on the link above that day. Groups of links refer to log book covers and introductory information; some may be blank.

Editor’s notes:

Each day’s entry is a précis of the log page, generally omitting routine entries.
On the first day of each month, there is a more detailed entry to give a flavour of the daily life.
The original page can be viewed by clicking on the link for that day.
The position for each day is that of the vessel at noon as entered in the log or at the location of a known port. When neither of these is available a position has been estimated from information in the log, using the Journey Plotter program, and this is marked [approx].
Noon positions are always given in the modern decimal format. Other positions in the text use the traditional degrees and minutes format.
