Alexandre Abbott and Benoit Toupin will share the driving duties for the first time. Michel Poirier HRL General Manager added, “They will have the perfect boat to learn with, the old Dream Maker S-222.” The two youngsters took possession of Philippe-Herve Cardinal’s old boat last weekend.
As for Claude Abbott he will not be far away as he will take on a new challenge as mentor to both his son Alexandre and his partner Benoit Toupin.
