'A' Cats save lives!

This is a true A Cat story from Andrea Ferrarri.


Giorgio Marchetto, called "il Bafo", a great fellow who is sailing on the Venice lagoon, at the age of 70 goes sailing almost every day, enjoying the beauties of the lagoon and the pleasure of his A Class.

Last Sunday during a nice trip through the islands, he had a heart attack, which could cost him his life.  It was only thanks to his cold blood and the speed of the catamaran that he managed to get back to the shore unaided and fast, just in time to be hospitalized and got life saving treatment.
