This 10th anniversary edition, with 1000 participants, was blessed by Eole the wind god. We had stronger and stronger winds the 4 days. Stellar organization and safety, a very funny race, the windsurfing equivalent of the NY marathon mixed with BBQ parties, Woodstock style concerts, a must.
Very grateful to Philippe Bru, event organizer, the 150 safety guards on the water and all the staff on land: you work like horses for us to have fun. A nice video link here to give you an idea of the event:
