Warding off all the attacks from Yann Eliès and Jean Le Cam, Jean-Pierre Dick (StMichel-Virbac) is still in fourth place for the le moment. In the 0800hrs UTC rankings, he was 41 miles from the finish sailing at around ten knots in a light easterly air stream.
Jean-Pierre Dick is expected to cross the finish line in Les Sables d'Olonne at around 1330hrs UTC after his fourth Vendée Globe. He came sixth in 2004-2005, was forced to retire in 2008-2009 and came fourth in 2012-2013, the same position he is expected to achieve this time. He can also be pleased to complete his round the world voyage in just under eighty days.
