Will Rogers' Roadtrip to Sagres

Duncan Slater

Watch Will Rogers‘ summertime roadtrip to Sagres in southern Portugal – plus Tarifa and Galicia in Spain – with Julia Slack…

“Dark evenings have lured me to trawl through the gigabytes of video we captured while away in the summer and put this little video together… Using the Brittany ferry from Plymouth to Roscoff made the trip a load easier…jumped in the van on Thursday night, drove down the road to the ferry and woke up the next morning in France. One last check of where’s windy followed by two 10-hour driving days and plenty of baguette, cheese, chorizo, coffee and Julia’s snoring and we arrived to a 25 knot Nortada in Sagres. We windsurfed like nutters for a few days there before heading south to Tarifa where we caught up with friends and battled freestyle in 40 knots (but failed to get the camera out once…). Then back to Sagres for a full week before heading north to catch wind and waves in the Northern parts of Portugal. Unfortunately the wind didn’t materialise up there, perhaps a little unlucky and late in the season with the coast shrouded by cloud. However, we surfed some big days in Galicia and shared some smaller ones with a huge pod of dolphins. At the end of the trip we chased the wind home sailing a few new spots on route. I will always prefer traveling in the van – the freedom of where you can go and the amount of kit you can take plus you get to camp right on the beach and get views that would cost a bomb in a hotel. Got some fun time lapse shots using the GoPro and a kitchen timer to get the pan effect. Thanks to; RRD, Chinook, Spartan Wetsuits, YES Masts, MauiSails and K-Bay…”
