Heat, Waves, Coffee and Fire

As we are being roasted by the relentless Mexican sun, our very first season living the cruising life is slowly but steadily coming to an end. But first, there’s more adventures to be had!

Sleepless Nights at Anchor

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

Hiding from the Blows

Sailing the north wind season in the Sea of Cortez has its perks but also its downsides. We’re hiding from strong winds!

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.

Our Maiden Voyage – a Hell of a Ride

We finally manage to leave Puerto Peñasco. But our maiden voyage with Milagros turns from champagne sailing into a hell of a ride.

Our Journey Back North Begins

Beauty awaits! Turquoise waters, amazing sealife, dramatic desert landscapes! Finally, we get to explore the Sea of Cortez properly!

A Surprise in La Paz

On the way to La Paz, we come together with fellow sailors and explore Isla Coronado. But time is pressing, because we have a surprise planned in La Paz.

This Is An Emergency!

We experience first-hand how quickly a simple passage can turn into an emergency. We got lucky big time.

Cast Off – We’re Going Sailing

We take a break from boat work and go on a sailing trip. Our departure was a bit hectic, because the painting of the freeboard was not going as planned.
