Sailing over the bar in El Salvador is one of those experiences you have to experience first hand. There is a lot of anticipation building up to the crossing, especially since (in our case) as we arrived in Bahía del Sol after a double over nighter from Chiapas, Mexico.
Bill & Jean, the ex-pat locals and founders of the El Salvador Cruisers Rally, are there to help. Bill rides with the guide in the panga and guides you in, Jean, to her infinite credit, is generally waiting on the dock with a couple of complimentary adult beverages.
For us, crossing the bar was so easy. We didn’t have a crazy day when we entered or left. In fact, we feel like we missed a bit of a ride and had some (kinda??) FoMo after finding out that some of our friends had lost their lifelines from a crazy wave, and others had run aground just after making it over the bar. Salt, however, couldn’t be bothered to serve up any excitement and the most thrilling moment we had was a nice slap on the bottom while leaving (see the nose dive pic).
All in all, Bahía del Sol was such a nice place to call home for a month. Good friends, good food, and good times were always easy to find. So we’re 2-for-1 drinks and a nice, cool pool. We miss our El Salvador Cruisers Rally palls already, and hope to see them soon!
A cracking sail into Bequia. We had a fantastic fast sail from St Lucia to Bequia alongside our mates on the GS46, Flying, good winds, reasonable waves! Excellent!

The mast gently rocks, the sky is blue, the sun beams down, the sails are filled and there's a peace in the air as she carves her way through the water....sailing at its best! ⛵
