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.

If there is any topic you are missing or anything you’re interested in that we did not cover yet, let us know in the comments or with a quick message!

We’re always open for input, ideas and criticism!

Start here from the beginning…



We Wanna Go Sailing

When fellow sailors leave the boatyard we want to go sailing, too! But we know: Our time on the water is coming soon! Just a few more (thousand) projects to complete…

Always Forward, Never Back!

The last few weeks have been frustrating and tough. But we have fought our way through the slump. We’re making progress and that’s how we like it!

Decision Fatigue – our Heads are Spinning

We suffer from acute decision fatigue – our heads are spinning. Because the decisions won’t make themselves, simple strategies are needed.

The Silence of the Desert

Even though it neither looks nor feels like it, we’re actually making progress with Milagros’ refit. Besides work, we enjoy a weekend in the desert.

Cruising Community – the best Community

After a few weeks at the Cabrales Boatyard we can say: We made the right decision to come here. Sometimes our situation is a bit overwhelming, but the company we have here makes everything a better.

Where there is Light, there is Shadow

The work seems endless and a recommendation of a professional makes us doubt our approach. Time to take a day off and celebrate my birthday.

Haunted by Bad Luck

Our fiberglass material was finally delivered – the rebuilding of the hull could begin! Finally, we thought, the destruction would stop. Unfortunately, that was not the case. We would learn a lot, but we were haunted by bad luck.

When Pleasure Ends In Drama

What starts off on a pretty nice sunday turns into a crazy week with all kinds of weird things happening.

Removing Thru Hulls – 20 are too many

We are removing thru hulls in order to close the holes before we paint Milagros’ hull. But not everything is going smoothly and one of our big projects needs a reassessment and is therefore delayed.
