We are inconsolable about the abrupt passing of Charles Favre, a great sailor and good friend of the Esse 850 International Class. He was overturned in a gust last Thursday on Lake Geneva whilst practicing with his A-Cat and sadly could not be reanimated despite prompt presence of rescue.
The first regatta of the season is not even a week ago. Despite the fairly moderate conditions, the sailors all in all enjoyed a successful start of season at the Circolo Velico Lago di Lugano. If you wish to catch some impressions of the event, please take a look at the beautiful short movie of the Alpen Cup 2015.
