The last day and’ been characterized by sun and wind.
The third and final day of the Windsurf Med Cup in Provence 2020 started with a little’ waiting and a body of water as smooth as a lake. But around noon, the wind finally’ relieved with 7-12 knots and a small chop.
It was therefore necessary to combine pumping and gliding, as well as open your eyes to be able to catch good gusts and good edges to create speed differentials.
The future Olympic body of water offered three full days of regatta, with very varied conditions: something to satisfy everyone!
Thanks to the climate and also the volunteers present at the event, there is no doubt that the World Cup will continue to attract French and international athletes in the years to come.
