Jackie now supports & trains everyone on the water: https://linktr.ee/SisterShipTraining Jackie returned to Australia after exploring the French canals on a Dutch barge with her Australian husband. Originally from the UK, Jackie is now an adopted Australian. She grew up with horses in the UK until her world was shattered with a heartbreaking bereavement. Disillusioned with life, she ran away to Australia and met and married Noel (within just a few months!). They decided to buy a boat and set sail. So within her first year living in a foreign land, she was getting used to a foreign husband and a foreign life on board! Mariah II took Jackie & Noel around the world. Pyewacket II (purchased in San Francisco) took them across the Pacific Ocean for a second time on a more southerly route. Adventures include The Great Loop in the USA plus Canada’s Great Lakes and the French Canals. Between boats they adopted 5 standardbred horses and set off into the Australian bush with just the horses and their gear on their backs... "an extraordinary experience." Their last boat was a motorboat - a long story (well a short one really) but keep following to see what new plans they have! Jackie & Noel spent three years on a 1920s Dutch Bunker barge, which they completely renovated while exploring France and Belgium. As a commercial captain Jackie has worked internationally, and has been a Marine Rescue skipper. She has also taught commercial maritime. She co-wrote a pilot book (in America) and several hundred magazine articles worldwide. Cruisers' AA (accumulated acumen) was Jackie (and Noel's) first self-published book. She now runs her own training company for recreational and commercial boaters, called SisterShip Training. New Street Communications Publishers has picked up most of Jackie's books and released audio versions.
