Qualifications in the pocket!

JP.Dick: "Left there are 11 days in Cascais, I just complete my training tonight solo aboard StMichel-Virbac! After traveling 3,600 miles solo between the Canary Islands, Cape Verde, the Azores and Lorient, the equivalent of a Route du Rhum, I am qualified to The Transat and the Vendée Globe. That's great !"
