Synopsis

The Cape Doctor is a persistent and dry wind that blows on the South African coast from September to March. A local belief says that it cleans Cape Town of pollution and pestilence.

While the Cape Doctor is good for city dwellers, it also has a significant impact on tourism by attracting windsurfers and kite surfers from all walks of life.

Antoine pays a visit to the mythical Cape of Good Hope, which made the sailors suffer the whims of its changing winds.
