Taking Flight well... taking flight!

Our third rally is now over.  We had a total of 98 boats sign up with 50 arriving in Bahia.  There are still a few more boats expected to arrive before summer starts.  Some of the rally activities are still continuing like happy hour and pizza Sunday and one or two more special tours are in the works plus everyone here will continue to receive discounts at the local businesses for the whole summer.

Wine tasting, cook-your-own, dinghy rafting, special tours, etc kept everyone entertained for the 7-week long rally.  Probably the highlight of the rally was the special 2-night event in Suchitoto.

Leading up to the rally we had successful events at the La Cruz and Chiapas marinas.  We’re sure everyone remembers the rum tasting in La Cruz and the special tours given by Macaw Tours in Chiapas and we expect even more for next year.  The rally influence is extending way beyond El Salvador.  For example, Marina Papagayo in Costa Rica is offering special prices for rally folks as well as Bocas del Toro marina in Panama.  We expect to continue our relationship with Marina Riviera Nayarit and Marina Chiapas for next years rally.

The organizers are going to take a short vacation then start planning the 2013 rally.

We want to thank everyone who arrived for making the long effort to come to El Salvador to discover the forgotten middle.
