During the first Defiwind Caribbean we had 35 windsurfers and 2 kiters. For Philippe Bru this was perfect to see what Bonaire can offer and if Bonaire is a good location for a Defiwind…. The fact that Philippe stayed longer on Bonaire than originally planned tells us enough and with in just a few hours all new plans for next year were made. Thanks to the GPS-system of Dotvision (Guillaume Pelletier) the competitors could be followed per second live through the website. This together with the expertise of Philippe and Bjorn Dunkerbeck made it a fantastic event and promises much more for coming years.

Together with Bjorn Dunkerbeck and Philippe Bru we decided that the Defiwind Caribbean 2017 will be from June 17th until June 21st and the  Sorobonmasters and Dunkerbeck Speed Challenge 2017 will be from June 22nd until June June 25th at Sorobon Beach Resort.

Registration will start November 1st 2016.

Philippe Bru

Le Défi wind founder and chef Philippe Bru is taking Défi Wind to a new location. He chose a beautiful island in the Caribbean, Bonaire. It will be a collaboration between Bjorn Dunkerbeck, the organisation team at Bonaire and Philippe Bru. This collaboration has all the know-how and skills to host and organize a promising new Défi Wind edition.

Björn Dunkerbeck

Windsurf legend Bjorn Dunkerbeck is competing in the race and will participate in the organization of Défi Wind Caribbean. His experience and know-how will be a perfect addition for the team. In collaboration with Bjorn Dunkerbeck we are sure, this new edition of Défi Wind will be a spectacular one.
