Will the metho-Dick approach win again ?
Jean-Pierre Dick is as discreet as he is rigorous and methodical in everything he does. He professes that his training as a veterinary surgeon has a lot to do with it: “A vet must know the history of the sick animal, make a diagnosis, give a remedy and then follow through the treatment. I apply the same methods to my sailing. You get all the information in, analyse the facts, make a call on the future plan and then carry out the solutions…”

Dick took victory in the Tour de France 2001 after winning 8 national titles in First Class 8, JOD 24 & 35, Melges 24 & Mumm 30. You’d consider him to be a regatta sailor but he wanted to change his horizons and so he is on this start line to qualify for the Vendée Globe.
Jean-Pierre Dick
He chartered PRB to get up to speed on Open 60’s, and unfortunately abandoned the Regatta du Rubicon and dismasted in the Route du Rhum. While he sailed the boat back home under jury rig, Farr Yacht Design were creating a new generation boat for him down in New Zealand at the Cookson Boatyard.
Just as Ellen MacArthur did 4 years ago, Jean-Pierre Dick came back from New Zealand on board his boat with crew, then double-handed and eventually solo. After his convincing victory in the Transat Jacques Vabre 2003, Dick is one of the favourites and by his methods become a formidable offshore skipper. The Défi Atlantique is his first single-handed race on ‘Virbac’.
