Pelagia back home in British Columbia... our Mexico cruising comes to an end

Pelagia flying high... unloading from MV Tiberborg

Pelagia was smoothly and efficiently unloaded from the MV Tiberborg on Wednesday June 17th. Except for a lot of salt (from heavy seas off Northern California/Oregon), she arrived in excellent shape. Kudos to the excellent crew of Raven Offshore Yacht Shipping, the master and crew of the MV Tiberborg, and, at the end, men and women of the Longshoreman's union in Chemainus.

After spending a day putting Pelagia back together, we took off for a short cruise in the Gulf Islands and Howe Sound, including a great sail across Georgia Strait. It was wonderful to be home.

With both sadness and excitement, our Mexico sailing adventure is now at an end. In a post (or two) down the road, we will consider why we returned, our pros and cons of cruising to/in Mexico, and thoughts on "offshore" cruising in general.

In the meantime, we are enjoying cruising our local waters and hiking around Whistler.

  1. Hello Pelagia, I hope you're enjoying BC. We, crew of SV Slappey II, are still in MX and found a link to your blog through an inquiry about transport. We are looking to ship our boat East, to the other coast, and would like to find out how it worked for you. If you're up for discussing it, please send us an email.
    Thx, John and Mary (
