It is with deep regret that ISAF reports the passing away of Elias Caronis of Greece.
Very sadly Elias passed away on the night of Saturday 13 October 2001, in Athens, Greece, after suffering from an illness.
Elias has been a long-term supporter of sailing and given outstandingly to the sport both internationally and nationally. Most recently, last year, Elias was appointed as the Competition Manager for the 2004 Olympic Regatta in Athens.
An ISAF International Judge since 1987, and an ISAF International Race Officer since 1989, Elias has been involved at the 1992, 1996 and 2000 Olympic Regattas as Race Management Consultant/Principal Race Officer. Alongside these roles, Elias officiated at many of the world's top sailing events.
ISAF expresses deepest sympathy to Elias' wife and family.
