History

The first Defiwind Caribbean in 2016 hosted 35 windsurfers and 2 kiters. This was a good preview on what Bonaire can offer and if Bonaire is a good location for a DefiWind. Soon it became clear that Bonaire, as well as all the participants passed the test and DefiWind Caribbean will become an annual, steadily growing event!

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 2018!
