We are new to the sailing world. Follow our humble beginnings here!


Our Unique Life On A Sailboat – Looking Back

David too looks back on our very first season of life on a sailboat. It was challenging, fun, exhilarating, life changing.

Sleepless Nights at Anchor

Between making headway, relaxing and enjoying ourselves, we also suffer from sleepless nights at anchor.

Our Eventful First Anchorage

The engine was running again, so we left Puerto Escondido to anchor for the first time with Milagros. But it was anything but quiet.

Stranded in Paradise

Well, here we are. Stranded in our new hood that is Puerto Escondido. Could be a lot worse tough, since it’s pretty darn nice around here. Maybe we’ll move in!

It’s Not Happening! We’re Not Heading Out!

We have had the worst week since we arrived in Mexico. From time to time we really ask ourselves how much one can bear.

A Special Turn Of The Year

We get the full programme over the turn of the year. We are preparing Milagros and ourselves for our first big trip. We’re also going on a road trip and my parents are coming to visit.

Finally in the water!!!

The time had finally come. The moment we had been waiting for was finally here: Milagros got water around her freshly restored booty again.

We’re Diesel Mechanics Now!

After 9 months at the boatyard, we finally wanted to finish. Therefore, nothing, but nothing at all should stop us. But we faced complications with our engine.

A Day to Forget About

The pouring rain hurricane Nora sent to Peñasco washed our dreams of finishing our time on the hard anytime soon down the drain. We have to deal with a cosiderable hit…
