Captain's Blog!

Hi everybody! With the winter lifting here in the Northern Hemisphere, and the odd warm day in Falmouth, I have been able to get back out on the water more regularly. I thought it would be good to tell you about a mini adventure I recently did and how easy it is to use the Paddle Logger app to keep a record of your experiences!

I am lucky to live alongside the estuary and have a view back across Falmouth Harbour towards the docks. Being the third deepest natural harbour in the world, we tend to get some big and interesting boats in! On the day of this trip the conditions looked absolutely perfect to get out on the water. So with a quick change, and a check that my iSUP was to pressure, I hot footed it down to my nearest put-in. Once there I set up the app, a quick 15 second countdown, stowed my iPhone and jumped on the water! My plan was to just switch off and head towards the centre of the harbour. Paddling along the back of all the historical buildings in the High Street and on towards the Lifeboat Station, you get to see the town from a different perspective. Being on the water is a great relaxer for me and offers a great escape from work, e-mails, constant messages and noise of day-to-day life.

Paddle Logger is about enhancing this escapism and your experience on the water by providing an unobtrusive tracking solution. That being said of course, we know that our users do more than just escape on the water and we have incorporated more detail into your journeys readout. This year we plan to build on this even further while still retaining our signature elegant style - I'll come back to this.

Anyway, back to the trip. Once I had got to my destination I got off the water, pressed end trip and I packed away. I went back into the app to the Digital Logbook to view where I had been, what I had seen and whether my off season fitness was as poor as I had felt! After being pleasantly surprised with my performance I did think I should share this trip on Facebook - which is made super easy with the direct integration. My mum likes to know where I have been!

A great little local trip showing how easy Paddle Logger is to use and how adventures can be found on your doorstep. Moving into 2018 we have got some exciting plans. Over the winter we have had some issues with the Apple Watch, fixes have been released and if others pop up we are straight on the bug squashing to get you guys back on the water as soon as possible. In terms of upgrades, we have some really cool app developments which those of you who are into your performance training will love. Best of all these will be released as part of a new system that will retain the simplicity and design ethos that we know our users love. Finally we will soon be able to announce a new suite of software that will be available cross platforms for all the adventurers and power users out there!

So, grab the app by following the link below and we would love to see the adventures you get up to!
