The Blog

Stories of our journey

Welcome to the reason why we have set up this homepage – we want to let you be part of our sailing voyage on our Kelly Peterson 44. Be it with good or bad news, if possible we’ll try to keep you updated with new sailing blog updates on a weekly basis about our experiences we make along the way.

Start here from the beginning…



Back to Work – the Clock is Ticking

After 2 weeks of “holiday” in Switzerland, we returned to Milagros. Thanks to a new approach to project management, we were able to tick off many tasks from our to-do list. And we rewarded ourselves with a fun trip to the dunes.

Feels like Home here

Finally we’re flying back home, we couldn’t wait. Two weeks of green and cool, friends and family and recharging the batteries. Do we even want to return to Mexico?

A Parcel in Mexico – a Short Story

We send a parcel to the US and mistakenly assume it’s a simple matter. This is a true story about international parcel shipping, helpful mailmen and the Mexican way.

Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall

Before we left for Switzerland, we wanted to finish a few projects – mostly with success. We also fought our way through the Mexican jungle of bureaucracy.

Life is Sweet

What’s up? I’m Dulce the cat, the yard manager, foreman and supervisor on Milagros. While Patricia and David are working, sanding, painting, epoxying, I’ll take command of the blog.

The Daily Grind is Real

We fight against our weaker selves and our beliefs. And we take the next step in one of our most important projects. But we also experience some moments on the sunny side of life.

The Elephant in the Room

Back to work! Holidays are over! We return to dusty Puerto Peñasco, where our construction site awaits. Time to conquer one of our biggest projects yet.

Scratching the Surface – from Agua Verde to San Carlos

After 10 days without internet and with our time schedule in mind, we left Agua Verde. Our route took us further north and ultimately, we crossed the Sea of Cortez to San Carlos.

Activity Holiday in the Sea of Cortez

The main goal of our stay on Anila is to train our sailing skills. But relaxation is not neglected. We get the full Sea of Cortez active holiday programme.
