Buying a sailboat far from home is something that many of us may have considered, especially if the goal is to start sailing somewhere different or if there are more sailboats with better price points elsewhere.
Today’s guests, Patricia and David from Sailing Milagros, are from Switzerland and they went all the way to Mexico to buy their sailboat. They are now in the middle of refitting the boat and getting her ready for sailing adventures. Patricia and David share some of the challenges they faced, and mention a few things to consider when buying a sailboat in Mexico, or anywhere far away from home. They also share a scary but educational story about sailing in the Sea of Cortez at night and what kind of problems sailors there can run into.
