The gentleman skipper, as Loïck Peyron calls him, comes from Nice. Trained as a veterinary surgeon and with a 3rd-cycle HEC degree, JP has a background that did not suggest a future sailing the seas. Yet, at the age of 36, this experienced sailor decided to change his life and devote himself to his passion for offshore sailing. Jean-Pierre Dick is a man of challenges. In 2002 he took on a considerable one: Competing in the Vendée Globe. A tenacious and ambitious fighter as well as an unusual character, he devoted himself to his new life as an all-out sailor.

After his first win in the Transat Jacques Vabre (with Nicolas Abiven), JP was at the start of the 2004-2005 Vendee Globe, making his dream come true. A real “DIYer” despite himself (boom broken and repaired, energy problem forcing him to sail the remaining three quarters of the round-the-world race on solar energy only), he finished his first Vendée Globe in sixth position. The skipper of Virbac-Paprec 3 then enjoyed a series of victories, with two new Transat Jacques Vabre races (2005 and 2011), and two wins in the Barcelona World Race (2008 and 2011). In 2011, he earned the recognition of his peers and was voted Yachtsman of the year. During the last Vendée Globe, as he was leading the race, a collision with a UFO broke his rudders. Despite his attempts to repair them, JP had to resign himself to stop the race.
