The Flamingo Run: 31 miles downwind in the Mediterannean

Join the F-ONE R&D team for a 31mile downwinder.

The team usually test foils together in the bay facing Montpellier. The forecast looked promising that weekend, so they decided to take the day off and target Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer from Sète, a distance of about 31 miles.

It was named  the “Flamingo Run” as they went along the renown Camargue, famous for hosting a large population of flamingos.

It was quite a smooth run for the six of them, although the wind was very light for more than half the distance and they even found ourselves going against it at times.

Anthony followed them along by the boat to capture that memorable team moment.
