Comments like Davides are not only wrong they are likely to cause offence.
We have a house 5 miles from Leucate and have sailed down there for past 20 years. (I still only speak "franglais".) The locals are always helpful friendly and very communicative. The Defi is difficult to get in for everybody ; its always oversubscribed. Organisation for it is difficult because like everywhere the wind does not always "play the game". Yes the Tromantane is reliable; strong and fantastic to sail in but is not 100% predictable. (Unlike thermal and Trades)
Anybody who knows anything about the region would not make comments anything like Davides; the locals are Catalans ;firercely independant and the most welcoming people you could wish to meet.
Like everywhere people treet visitors as they find them ????????????
