3) Expect very heightened SW to S swell for at least the next 10 days. Those of you in or thinking of crossing the bar in Bahia del Sol, take extreme caution

Yes, the bar here at Bahía del Sol is closed this week due to the swell conditions making crossings dangerous.  Bill & Jean are able to give forecasts before you depart enroute to El Salvador.  Best to use their resources or risk having to either cruise on by or anchor outside until it’s safe to enter.
