After leaving the site in 2015, this IMOCA is leaving directly for the Vendée Globe under the colours of Saint-Michel/Virbac skipper Jean-Pierre Dick.

Equipped with supporting appendages, StMichel-Virbac has been studied in collaboration with the Gitana Team. At the end of February 2019, the former Ucar StMichel was put back in the water in Lorient with Giancarlo Pedote at the helm under the colours of Prysmian Group. In 2020, the IMOCA will leave for its second round-the-world trip.
