Francois Jacques, 2005 – 2012

Francois at the helm 2009

On behalf of Nantucket Yacht Club -SL,  Gemma Vuckovic today announced:

I am so sorry to tell you that our beloved Francois Jacques, Commodore of Nantucket Yacht Club, has sadly passed away in real life.
At the moment we are all stunned and upset. It’s a devastating blow to lose such a loved and valued member of our community.
Francois was not only our Commodore but a major champion to the whole sailing community. Her SL & RL love was us, the sailors, and we have benefited from her passion and dedication.
We have lost a beautiful friend. Fair winds Francois.

I knew Francois for six years in Second Life Sailing. There was no better friend, no more generous person, and no more avid sailor than FJ.

She will be profoundly missed by us all.
