What you experienced was the infamous Mistral winds. They can race out of the mountains at almost any inconvenient & unpredictable time. They have kicked sailors hind ends for as long as there has been sailing on the Med. (Greek myths & angry sea gods etc.) Certain times of the year are well known to be worse.
