Jester (both of them) was/is an amazing boat. Not my speed but that is not the point.
I don't remember if this was in BH's time or MR's but there is a lovely story about the skipper of Jester doing a transatlantic and never having to take off his slippers and dressing gown. You have got to love that image...somewhat eccentric Brit crossing the Atlantic in PJs, dressing gown and slippers. Cup of tea at hand, pipe firmly clenched twixt teeth.
Somewhat eccentric yes, but both of them were consumate sailors.
