Around the World in 18 YearsBook - 2005
"Hubert Marcoux was born February 12,1941 in Charlo, on the Baie des Chaleur in New Brunswick, Canada. Following a sailing trip around the world that lasted 18 years and took two sailboats, he started giving conferences after his arrival in Halifax in 2003. He soon realized that a book was needed. He spent all of 2005 writing, first the French version Mon tour du monde en 18 ans then the English version Around the world in 18 years. The book contains 296 pages of which 8 are of colour photos and there are many black and white photos and charts throught the book to facilitate the reading of the text. In the preface, Serge St-Martin, Chief Commander, Canadian Power and Sail Squadron writes: " 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. Hubert is a magician. He performs his magic with his hands as with his words. He captivates us with his tales just as he captivated the Kuna indians in the San Blas islands."--Author's website.
