For those not familiar with it, Le Defi Wind is the biggest windsurfing race in the world with 1300 registered competitors. It takes place on the southern coast of France famous for the very strong Tramontana winds. Previous weekends hosted competitions for kites and wings.

I'll post the Day 4 video when it's available
