Francois Jacques, originally uploaded by ** GoSpeed Racer **. (17 NOvember 2007)

I am very saddened to hear about the passing of Francois Jacques in RL. I first met her in the fall of 2006 where she joined the Nantucket Yacht Club in those rambunctious first few months of The East End. Francois was a very unique individual and a kind person. While the sailing community of SL was full of strife, politics and interpersonal conflict she floated above it all. She was the perfect sailor and standards setter for everyone to follow.

She will be missed.

Fair Winds and Following Seas Francois, we love you.
