The founder of the Défi Wind and the legendary windsurfer will organize three international windsurfing events - the Défi Wind Caribbean, the Sorobon Masters, and the Dunkerbeck GPS Challenge - in a single week.

The triple windsurfing event series will run in Sorobon Beach, Pink Beach and Te Amo Beach, in Bonaire, between June 23-30, 2019.

The Sorobon Beach Resort and Dunkerbeck Pro Center will provide the headquarters and the windsurfing equipment rentals for the events.

The Défi Wind Caribbean will operate in the same Le Défi principle of free racing, i.e., with a minimum of 20 kilometers.

The race will take place in the western side of the island of Bonaire, from Pink Beach/Te Amo Beach to Klein Bonaire and back.

The Sorobon Masters 2019 will showcase three divisions: freestyle, slalom and speed and is open for all age categories. Competitors are welcome to enter all events or only the ones they are interested in.

The Dunkerbeck GPS Speed Challenge will allow sailors from all over the world to join from any beach in the world, and in real-time, the Bonaire action, by using their GPS watches and uploading their best speed records.
