We are considering Portugal for this years windsurfing trip. Anyone been? looking at the Algarve area so anyone got tips on sailing spots, kit hire etc. Could take my own kit, I suppose, but Mrs C is going to struggle to carry that as well as my golf clubs!

Many years ago we stayed at a place near Sagres where there was a magnificent beach just to the East of the town with a windsurf centre which did not open until June. Typically we were there in May. What I saw was flat water blasting on 5m sails, offshore winds but an island to make for if anything went wrong. That area is the best end of the Algarve, which seemed to me to be end to end classy golf clubs and Premier League footballers. The Atlantic coast is only a few miles from Sagres and it is magnificent but I didn't see any where to hire kit. Terrific surf when we were there,
