French long distances, needs different boards en sails.
West Races => Most of time FW and Slam between 60 and 75, sails 6.5 => 12.0.
- 7 =>25/30 Knots.
South Races => A lot of boards..... and sails.
- 15 => 50 Knots.

For exemple, Philipe needs a smaller sail than 5.8 for the biggest LD race in the world ( 800 people this year ) Gruissan. Mostly you have 20/35 Knots, but often 40/45 and last year 62 Knots gusts............................................. .


The fastest board is the one who leads after 10 or 60 Km dépending from the race with a lot of wind conditions.
