SUP Round Menorca: some sights and sounds

Submitted by jono on 04 Jul 2020.

A video with some cobbled together sights and sounds from a three day paddle round my island home. I set off from Fornells with supplies in a barrel and a 6 litre water bottle. First night I slept on the beach at Son Saura; second night was at Punta Prima (where also refilled water bottle).

It was a fun thing to do, and Menorca wowed me with its beauty, but the final taste was bittersweet, because the Mediterranean's plastic problem is as real as when I last checked. Today, I also went for a surf, and paddled through plastic after every wave, which probably explains why this video gets posted today.

Thanks to John Clark for the extra filming.

** Let's not pretend that filling our world's natural spaces with plastic is normal **

Plastic:

  • Use less
  • Re-use
  • Recycle.

 

Some extra details and pics...

  • Wind: Easterly gentle gradient wind with thermal reinforcement during afternoons
  • 3 days. Start: Fornells 24-6-2020
  • Anticlockwise circumnavigation
  • 1st night: Son Saura
  • 2nd night: Punta Prima
  • total distance: 140km moving: about 36 hours
