Victory of JP Dick-L Peyron in the 2nd Barcelona World Race
Monday 4 April 2011 – 12.20 and 36s: Virbac-Paprec 3 has just crossed the finish line to win the Barcelona World Race.
After 94 days at sea (93 days/22hours/12min) and two pit stops, Jean-Pierre DICK and Loïck PEYRON have won the 2nd edition of this prestigious round-the-world race with two skippers, and no stopovers.
This is Jean-Pierre’s second consecutive win in this race.
Dominique Ceolin and David Hoey are in Barcelona to share this unique moment with all the boat’s stakeholders.
The ABC arbitrage group is happy to celebrate the victory of these two heroes, but also wants to pay homage to all the members of the Virbac Paprec Sailing Team, without whom this victory would not have been possible.
Our congratulations to the champions!
