SinC Marc Robic New Boat Models 400Serenity Now, the new creation, joins Marc’s Catalina 270 Aquaholic 3

In the winter, our contributor Marc Robic goes indoors but his love of sailboats continues undiminished. We published a two part story on the models he builds and gives away in 2022 – Part 1 and Part 2.

Now Marc has created another miniature beauty, is a Mirage 25, called Serenity Now, owned by a fellow Ile-Perrot Yacht Club member, David Pelletier. “Notice the name on the stern is exactly what the real boat has, like the Seinfeld TV show logo,” Marc points out.

With his models, charters and writing, one way or another Marc keeps sailing year-round!

The European portion of SailGP Season 4 got underway this weekend in Saint-Tropez, France. Having hit record breaking speeds last year on the Côte d’Azur, Phil Robertson and the Canadians were looking forward to this weekend of racing, but things did not turn out as hoped. A penalty in the pre-start of race one was a precursor of what was to come, and it proved difficult for the team to recover.

A collision with Spain early on in race one set the team back and translated into eight penalty points for the event and an additional four penalty points for the season.
