Who would have thought it could be too windy for Le Defi to run. Our sources on the scene tell us that competition is currently on standby because the wind strength is too strong.

Currently recording 55-60knots it would be no surprise to anyone if we see this pick up even more as the local effects from the day impact the current wind.

Latest news just in is that they are looking at a first possible start of 13.30. Out with the slalom sails in with the wave sails!
