Wow! Only the French could come up with something like this. I liked the fast boat starting line... over early...you die!!! How about the stack up at the mark, ouch! Extra points to the guy who threw the chop hop forward, tres bien! The thought of being in the midst probably a thousand amped up Euros going huevos to the wall is the stuff of nightmares. I 'd rather sail in the Polish version of this race... A straight line drag race , one mark a the start and one at the finish... Just somehow go between them, works in skiing! Overall, pretty cool!!!

Yeah windsurfing rocks, and the French are indeed awesome. Here's a nice vid from nearby in Leucate:

Looks just like South padre in April. Maybe the SPI crew is a bit older

Support the AWT events... they may not have the number of sailors as Defi Wind but the enthusiasm for sailing is the same...
