“We left Sänna in, of all places, El Salvador, which made one or two blink wide-eyed because of the high crime, the gangs and all that. It seems an okay place so far, there’s a small gathering of US and Canadian sailboats waiting out the hurricane season, they tell us there’s never any trouble…”
It’s a little late, but we’ve now gotten around to writing-up and updating our ‘Where Are We Now” part of our Sänna website. Lots of you have been asking. This describes our voyage south from Ensenada in a northern Mexico to Bahiá Del Sol in El Salvador back in 2018.
Much has happened in the last twelve months or so of this year. You know how it is, family, the lure of an English summer, music festivals, the cricket… so we decided to spend this last summer back in England.

El Salvador… not a usual sailing destination but the Bahiá Del Sol is a picturesque land-locked estuary that can only be entered by using a pilot boat over the entrance bar. It’s nice, the El Salvador Rally is based in the Bahiá Del Sol… so we thought it would perhaps be safe enough to leave Sänna there over Christmas whilst we returned to England. Then things turned out unexpected, our original plan was to stay only a few days in El Salvador but, as the few other sailboats in Bahiá Del Sol told us – ‘we said that too.’
