May, the 1st , arriving in Bermuda , Jean-Pierre qualified himself with his JP54 “Notre Méditerranée – Ville de Nice” for the Route du Rhum 2022. It's a great step to be taken.
The finish was a bit stressful. Jean-Pierre didn't know the place and the weather was windy. Fortunately, he was able to count on his shore team with whom he exchanged quite a bit and on his sense of the sea to judge the manoeuvres to be carried out.
On the overall, things have been well organized and it has been a very good qualifying between Marie Galante and Bermuda. Jean-Pierre came into cohesion with his JP54 and rediscovered his feelings as a competitor.
He did almost everything upwind and in rather steady winds, with a small high pressure to cross 500 nautical miles from the finish, a rather soft wind zone, never easy to negotiate.

A new partner :
It has also been the opportunity for him to officially introduce you to Groupe François 1er, which wanted to join the adventure as a partner.
Groupe François 1er and Jean-Pierre share the same concern for preservation:
For Groupe François 1er, real estate heritage that they restore and enhance, and for Jean-Pierre the Mediterranean that he will represent through the competition.
