“In memory of Hubert Marcoux …”
This page is dedicated to a friend that came to visit our shop.
A true adventurer lost at sea after leaving with his boat for the island of Bermuda.
Most importantly very nice man to talk too, he had lots of interesting stories.
If you can find his book called “Marcoux, Hubert ; Around the World in 18 Years”
Self Published 2005, a great read. If you like reading about adventures at sea, it is a book to get.
The Preface of his book:
“Few of us have the courage or the temerity to drop everything
to realize our dream of adventure, to go beyond ourselves or
simply to live a life other than the ordered, sterilized model
of our modern world.”

November 25, 2009 – Halifax to Bermuda “Hubert Marcoux, a 68-year-old French Canadian solo sailor aboard the 45-ft Mon Pays, is presumed lost on his voyage from Halifax to Bermuda,” writes Jack van Ommen of the Gig Harbor, Washington-based Naja 29 Fleetwood. Van Ommen’s boat is currently wintering in Amsterdam more than halfway through his wayward circumnavigation. Hubert Marcoux never made it to Bermuda.
Details are still sketchy.
We think van Ommen is right.
