Défi Wind is the legendary event that puts over 1000 windsurfers on the same starting line, pros and amateurs alike for an edge of your seat harness racing experience like nothing else. Every May eager ‘Défi’s’ make the pilgrimage to Gruissan in the South of France to face the might of the howling Tramontane winds and test their metal on long distance reaches. In and out of the buoys this definitely is not. Amongst the challengers was our very own John Skye, he recounts this year’s event and why it was one to remember!
