During the first Defiwind Caribbean in 2016 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 the 2017.
