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…

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.

Grindadráp – A Closer Look

It’s that time of the year again. I take a closer look at the Grindadràp, the annual pilot whale hunt on the Faroe islands.

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.
