Yes, she’s real and she’s lovely and she’s there with Les onboard nb.Valerie.
They look so happy together, so well suited and so much in love.
Jaq was busy in the galley when we arrived, bread fresh from the oven, a huge dish with cherries ready to go in and still she rustled up a sandwich for V and me, not just any sandwich but one of Jaq’s own with all kinds of things I’ve never seen in a sandwich before, absolutely wonderful.

They look good together, Les is constantly smiling like a cat that got the cream and Jaq has taken to the boat like a fish to water, she is very much at home.

Our very best wishes to you both, Les and Jaq, for a long and happy life together.
